LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL. 



Office of the J^oeth Caeoeii^a Coeporatiost Commissiois'. 

Ealeigh, K C, December 31, 1904. 

His Excellency, Charles B. Aycock^ 

Governor of North Carolina, 

Raleigh, N. C. 
Sir: — We hand you herewith our report for the year 1904, being 
the sixth annual report of the ISTorth Carolina Corporation Com- 
mission. 

RAILROADS. 

During the year 1904 there were 3,803.09 miles of main line of 
railroad in operation in the State. Gross earnings of railroads within 
the State, for the year ending June 30, 1904, amounted to $20,- 
387,940 ; operating expenses, $12,848,929 — leaving net income from 
operation, $7,539,011, a net increase of $1,065,173 over last year's 
operations. The railroads employed 15,205 persons in ]^orth Caro- 
lina. One hundred and twenty persons were killed in the move- 
ment of trains, and of these, two were passengers and thirty-nine 
were employees. There were 4,930,095 passengers transported dur- 
ing the year. 

Three hundred and thirty-five complaints were made to the Com-, 
mission, most of which were disposed of. A few are now pending 
before the Commission and one case is pending on appeal from the 
Commission's order. 

The case of the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company against the 
Southern Railway Company, to which reference was made as pend- 
ing in the Superior Court in our last report, was disposed of in the 
State courts. When the case was docketed in the Superior Court of 
Guilford County the Southern Railway made motion to remove the 
case to the Federal Court on the ground that there was more than 
$2,000 involved and that the Southern Railway was a resident of 
another State. This motion was refused and appeal was taken to the 



4 N. C. COKPORxVTION COMMISSION. 

Supreme Court, which court affirmed the judgment of the court below 
aud remanded the case for trial. When the case was again called 
in the Superior Court for trial the Southern Railway withdrew its 
appeal, and so the judgment entered by the Corporation Commis- 
sion was affirmed. Before the dismissal of this appeal, however, a 
suit was brought in the Circuit Court of the United States for the 
Eastern District of N'orth Carolina, alleging that the order made by 
this Commission was void for many assigned reasons, and praying 
for an injunction against its enforcement and against the enforcement 
of penalties which accrued under the law for the violation of the 
order. Injunction was granted to the hearing and at the hearing was 
made perpetual. The Corporation Commission has appealed from 
this judgment, as it involves a question of vital importance to the 
shippers and consignees in ^N^orth Carolina. 

The facts in this case were as follows : The Greensboro Ice and 
Coal Company had a coal and wood-yard at Greensboro, and upon 
their application to the Southern Railway it was agreed between 
them to construct a side-track leading into this yard, underneath 
which, at the end of the track, would be a coal bin into which cars 
loaded with coal could be emptied, the agreement being that the 
Greensboro Ice and Coal Company would do the grading and furnish 
the cross-ties and that the Southern Railway would furnish the rails 
and lay the track. This work was completed about October 1, 1903, 
and twenty or more cars were switched by the Southern Railway on 
this side-track, which Avere emptied by the Greensboro Ice and Coal 
Company and returned to the Southern Railway prom]:)tly. . 

There was a disagreement between the Greensboro Ice and Coal 
Company and the Southern Railway about demurrage on thirteen 
of the cars of coal Avhicli Avere switched on the siding and emptied, 
and which had arrived at Greensboro during the time ])art of the 
side-track above referred to was being constructed. It was claimed 
by the Southern Railway that demurrage of $146 had accrued on 
these cars and that the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company had agreed 
to pay this amount; while it was claimed by the Greensboro Ice and 
Coal Company that no dennirrage had accrued on those cars and they 
had not agreed to pay that or any other amount. On account of this 
disagreement, notice, as follows, was served on the Greensboro Ice 



LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL. 5 

and Coal Company by the Sontliern Railway Company: "Please take 
notice that commencing 12 :00 noon, October 17, 1903, this company 
will decline to switch any cars to yonr private siding in the yards 
of yonr company at Greensboro, K^. C, and will only make delivery 
to yon on the pnblic team tracks of this company in the yards at 
Greensboro, X. C. This action is made necessary by reason of yonr 
refusal to comply with car service regulations, declining to pay rea- 
sonable charges for the use of cars that have been detained before 
unloading on your private track above referred to, and that we find 
it necessary for the protection of our equipment to tender you further 
deliveries upon tracks where cars may be under our immediate super- 
vision and control." 

Four cars of coal had been transported by the Southern Railway 
to Greensboro, consigned to the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company, 
all of which were from points outside of the State. The Greensboro 
Ice and Coal Company, upon notice of arrival, offered to pay freight 
on said cars, and requested that they be placed on the siding that had 
been recently constructed, and the Southern Railway refused this 
request but offered to place them, and did place them, on the public 
team tracks. Thereupon the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company ap- 
plied to the Corporation Commission, and asked that the Southern 
Railway be required to place the cars on the siding into their yard. 
iVfter finding out from the agent of the Southern Railway that the 
above were substantially the facts, the Corporation Commission 
ordered the Southern Railway to place the cars upon the siding 
upon payment of all freights due thereon, and that this be done within 
forty-eight hours from service of the order. 

Upon exceptions to this order by the Southern Railway, after 
notice to both parties, and at which both parties were represented 
by counsel, the exceptions were heard, and, upon consideration of 
the facts offered, the Corporation Commission overruled the Southern 
Railway's exceptions and affirmed their order. 

The Corporation Commission was of the opinion that the claim 
by the Southern Railway for demurrage was unjust and that the 
Southern Railway should not refuse to switch the cars in question 
on account of this dispute about demurrage on cars already delivered. 
From this order there was an appeal to the Superior Court. We have 



6 N. C. CORPOKATION COMMISSION. 

given above the disposition of this appeal ; but; notwithstanding the 
appeal, the Southern Railway proceeded to switch the four cars in 
controversy and all other cars of the Greensboro Ice and Coal Com- 
pany on said side-track. 

If the contention of the Southern Railway now asserted in the 
Federal Court is sustained in this matter, namely, that railroads 
can, after constructing a side-track partly at the expense of the party 
applying for it and partly at the expense of the railroad, arbitrarily 
refuse to switch cars on said side-track, it follows that the railroads 
can, in effect, confiscate so much money as was invested by the other 
party in the side-track and also run the party out of business, unless 
compliance is made with railroad demands, no matter how arbitrary 
or unjust. It seems that the Southern Railway Avould have com- 
pelled the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company to have paid $146 
demurrage or quit business in this instance but for the interposition 
of the Corporation Commission. It is needless to state that the 
Greensboro Ice and Coal Company could not conduct a coal and 
wood business at Greensboro when the Southern Railway would 
only deliver freight to them on public team tracks, when there are 
several other parties there competing for this business who have 
sidings to their places of business and facilities for unloading coal 
with less cost and more expedition. 

We are of the opinion that railroad companies have no such right, 
whether the shipments are interstate or intrastate, and that the Cor- 
poration Commission can require the delivery of both classes of 
freight. 

Another important case has just been decided by our Suprme Court. 
On February 13, 1901, after several conferences had been held with 
the Atlantic Coast Line Company and the Southern Railway Com- 
pany, these companies were directed by the Corporation Commis- 
sion to make connection with their trains at Selma in the afternoon 
of each day. From this order the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Com- 
pany appealed to the Superior Court of Wake County. The facts 
in dispute were submitted to a jury and a verdict was rendered; but 
the Superior Court held that the Corporation Commission had no 
power to make such order, and reversed the same. From this judg- 
ment there was an api)eal by tlie Cor])oration Commission to the 



LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL. 7 

Supreme Court, where the jiidginent of the Superior Court was 
reversed and the order of the Corporation Commission was in all 
respects confirmed. The order, judgment of the Superior Court and 
opinion of the Supreme Court will appear in full in another place 
in this report. This restores to the people in Eastern !N'orth Caro- 
lina an important connection which had been maintained by the rail- 
roads themselves for more than ten years, and which is the most 
direct and cheapest outlet for people from Eastern ^N^orth Carolina 
to Ealeigh and other Southern Railway points. 

Another case now pending is the petition of the Dennis-Simmons 
Lumber Company for scales to weigh car-load freights at Elm City. 
Petitioners claim that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company 
received revenue from car-load freights at Elm City from the Dennis- 
Simmons Lumber Company annually amounting to about $26,000, 
and that there were other car-load freights shipped from Elm City 
over the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. Defendant railroad com- 
pany admitted that they receiA^ed from the Dennis-Simmons Lumber 
Company annually about $13,356 for freights. 

The Corporation Commission was of the opinion that inasmuch 
as the law, section 17 of the Corporation Commission Act, required 
that all railroad companies in this State shall, on demand, issue 
duplicate freight receipts to shippers, in which shall be stated the 
class or classes of freight shipped, freight charges over the road giv- 
ing the receipt, and so far as practicable shall state the freight charges 
over the roads that carry such freight ; and inasmuch as this could 
not be done without facilities for weighing cars, and taking the 
amount of revenue at this point as estimated either by petitioner or 
the defendant, it was reasonable and just that the Atlantic Coast 
Line Railroad Company be required to furnish facilities for weigh- 
ing car-load freights at Elm City, and it was so ordered. The peti- 
tion and order will appear in full in another part of this report. 
From this order defendant appealed to the Superior Court of Wilson 
County, and upon the hearing that court held that the Corporation 
Commission did not have the power to make the order, and reversed 
the order, and from this judgment the Corporation Commission ap- 
pealed to the Supreme Court, and the matter will be heard at the 
February term of that court. 



8 N. C. COKPORATION COMMISSION. 

Appeals from the Corporation Commission/ under the present 
law, must be to the Superior Court and thence to the Supreme Court, 
and upon final judginent in the Supreme Court the practice would 
be to certify final judgment to the Superior Court and thence to the 
Corporation Commission. It would facilitate and expedite the work 
of the Commission if the law were changed so as to require that cer- 
tificate of final judgment be certified direct to the Corporation Com- 
mission, and permit the Corporation Commission to apply to the 
court in which final judgment was entered on mandnmus to enforce 
the execution of the order. 

The Corporation Commission, under the present law, must enforce 
its orders by suits in other courts, and, as we have shown, important 
orders are often appealed from and in other cases the Corporation 
Commission is enjoined by Federal courts. We believe it would be 
more satisfactory to parties applying to the Commission for relief, 
and to the Commission, and more economical, if the Corporation 
Commission were authorized to employ its own counsel in all of its 
litigation. 

Ours is the only State, we are informed, in which railroads are 
required to furnish first and second-class fares for passengers. It is 
claimed that this is a hindrance to better passenger service ; that to 
furnish two classes of fares and separate accommodations for the 
races on each train requires so many cars as to make an unwieldy 
train; or that the coaches be divided up and that passenger fares can 
be reduced by this arrangement. They are 8 cents per mile now in 
other States, while our rates are 314 cents for first-class and 2% 
cents for second-class. If the law were amended so as to require only 
one fare, that couhl certainly be made lower than our present first- 
class fare. The average rate per passenger mile, according to reports 
to this Commission, for the year ending June 30, 1904, was as fol- 
lows: Southern Railway, .0239 ; Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, .0247 ; 
Seaboard Air Line Railway, .0234. 

BANKS. 

The number of banks operated under State laws increased from 
155, as shown by our last report, to 192. The total resources of 
State banks, according to report November 10, 1904, amount to 



LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL. 9 

$31,604,183, an increase of $5,435,901 over the resonrces at the 
time of onr last report. The list of the banks in the State giving 
name, location, names of officers, capital stock, when chartered and 
when organized and opened for bnsiness will be fonnd in this report. 

During the year fonr banks were reported to the Commission by 
State Bank Examiner, Mr. J. O. Ellington, to be insolvent, and the 
Bank Examiner was ordered to take charge of the assets until a 
receiver conld be appointed. These were the Merchants and Farmers 
Bank, Dnnn; the Bank of Dnnn; Merchants and Planters Bank at 
Milton, and the Gastonia Banking Company at Gastonia. Perma- 
nent receivers for the first two w^ere appointed by the Snperior Court 
of Harnett County, and for the Merchants and Planters Bank, Mil- 
ton, by the Superior Conrt of Caswell County. A temporary receiver 
was appointed for the Gastonia Banking Company, but before the 
date fixed for hearing motion for appointment of permanent re- 
ceiver the stockholders had settled np nearly all of the debts out- 
standing against the bank and the bank's affairs were put in satisfac- 
tory shape, and no motion was made for a permanent receiver. 

AVe are pleased to report that in the case of the two failures re- 
ported in our last annual report, to-wit, the Merchants and Farmers 
Bank, ^ew Bern, and the Pilot Bank and Trust Company, Pilot 
Mountain, the stockholders have paid all of the indebtedness of these 
banks. 

BUILDING AND LOAN ASSOCIATIONS. 

The building and loan associations are all State organizations, and 
are in a prosperous condition and serving a very useful purpose in 
the State. There are now forty-three in operation in the State. 

From reports to this office, as of December 31, 1903, compilations 
have been made which show that these institutions have assets aggre- 
gating $2,542,988. The name, location, officers, assets and liabilities 
of each building and loan association are given in this report. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Franklin Mc!Neill, Chairman.

DECISIONS 



ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS 



STATE EX REL. THE NORTH CAROLINA CORPORATION COMMISSION 
vs. THE ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILWAY COMPANY. 

In the matter of the schedule and connection of trains of the Atlantic Coast 
Line Railroad Company and the Southern Railway at Selma: 

This cause coming on to be heard upon exception by Atlantic Coast Line Railroad 
Company to order heretofore made, and being heard on the 12th of January, 1904, 
the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company being represented by Mr. E. Borden, 
general superintendent of transportation, and Junius Davis, Esq., counsel ; and 
the Southern Railway being represented by Mr. H. W. Miller, assistant to first 
vice-president; and upon a thorough and fuller hearing, the following facts ap- 
peared: 

On December 3, 1893, a schedule was established by the Atlantic Coast Line 
Railroad Company on train No. 39 for its arrival at Selma at 2:45 P. M. This 
schedule has not been materially changed since that time. Since November 30, 
1902, the arriving time of this train at Selma has been 2:50 P. M. and the leaving 
time 2:55 P. M. This train runs between Richmond, Va., and Jacksonville, Fla. 

For a number of years the schedule of the Southern Railway on train No. 135, 
running from Goldsboro to Greensboro, was so arranged as to make close connec- 
tion with the Atlantic Coast Line train No. 39 at Selma, and from November 30, 
1902, to October 11, 1903, the arriving time of this train at Selma was .... and 
the leaving time 3:00 P. M. 

The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company operates a train from Washington, 
N. C, to Parmele. This train leaves Washington at 8:00 A. M. and arrives at 
Parmele at 8:55 A. M., connecting at the latter place with the Atlantic Coast 
Line train from Plymouth to Rocky Mount, and returning leaves Parmele at 5:22 
P. M. and arrives at Washington at 6:15 P. M. 

Tlie Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company operates a train, No. 65, from 
Plymouth to Rocky Mount, which leaves Plymouth at 7:30 A. M., and arrives at 
Rocky Mount at 10:35 A. M., and returning leaves Rocky Mount at 3:35 P. M. 
and arrives at Plymouth at 6:35 P. M. 

The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company operates a train, No. 49, from Nor- 
folk, Virginia, to Rocky Mount. This train leaves Norfolk at 9:00 A. M. and 
arrives at Rocky Mount at 12:50 P. M. 

The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company also operates train No. 68 from 
Spring Hope to Rocky Mount. This train leaves Spring Hope at 11:20 A. M. 
and arrives at Rocky Mount at 12:10 P. M., and returning leaves Rocky Mount 
at 4:00 P. M. and arrives at Spring Hope at 4:45 P. M. 



12 X. C. CORPORATION COMMISSIOX. 

The scliediile of No. 39 at Rocky Mount was and is 1:10 P. M. For a number 
of years this connection at Selma was kept, and it was a most important connec- 
tion, being the principal outlet for passengers enroute from Eastern Carolina to 
Raleigh and other points on the line of the Southern Railway. 

For the past year, although announced in the schedule of these railroad com- 
panies, the connection has not been kept. The reason for this failure was the 
fact that the Atlantic Coast Line train did not make the schedule time. Tlie 
record of train sheets of the Atlantic Coast line Railroad Company shows that 
No. 39 only arrived at Selma on schedule time twice between August 1, 1903, and 
January 11, 1904, and that during this period No. 39 was more than ten minutes 
late every day except twenty-four. 

The rule required the Southern Railway to hold train No. 135 at Selma ten 
minutes after schedule time for No. 39 of the Atlantic Coast Line; and, if this 
rule was adhered to, connection would only have been made twenty-four times dur- 
ing more than five months from August 1, 1903. 

The Commission was assured by general superintendent of transportation of the 
Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company that the failures to keep this schedule at 
Selma were not by reason of indifference or carelessness, but were unavoidable, 
and that every effort had been made tO' get the train to Selma on schedule time. 
That No. 39 is a local train, making all stops, and daily handling one or two extra 
express cars, and these with other ears making in all ten or more in the train. 

It will thus be seen that while the Atlantic Coast Line train No. 39 was sched- 
uled for arrival at 2:50 P. M. at Selma, that passengers in this route were disap- 
pointed and inconvenienced by the failure to connect. 

On the 11th of October, 1903, the Southern Railway changed its schedule of No. 
135 for arriving at Selma from 2:50 P. M. to 2:25 P. M. The reason assigned 
by the Southern Railway for this change was that the 2:50 P. M. schedule re- 
quired them to run at too great speed in order to connect with its own trains at 
Greensboro, a speed that was dangerous. 

Assuming that the statements made by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Com- 
pany are true — that it was for the past five months impossible for them to bring 
No. 39 to Selma by schedule time, to-wit, 2:50 P. M., more than twice, and that 
this train was more than ten minutes late every day except twenty-four — we 
must conclude that it is impracticable to require them to make a faster schedule 
and place this train at Selma at 2:25 P. M., instead of 2:50 P. M. ; and, there- 
fore, this much of the former order is revoked and annulled; but the Commission 
is of the opinion that it is practicable, and that the convenience of the traveling 
public requires that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company furnish transpor- 
tation for passengers from Rocky Mount to Selma after 12:50 P. M., and by or 
before 2:25 P. M. each day. That this can be done by extending the run of the 
Plymouth train to Selma instead of having it lie over at Rocky Mount as now, or 
by extending the run of the Spring Hope train to Selma instead of having it lie 
over at Rocky Mount as now (the distance from Plymouth to Rocky Mount is 
69 miles, and from Spring Hope to Rocky Mount is 19 miles, and from Rocky 
Mount to Selma 42 miles) ; or by providing a separate train for the service. 

And it is therefore ordered that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company 
furnish transportation for passengers from Rocky Mount to Selma after 12:50 P. 
M. and by or before 2:25 P. M. each day. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 13 

It is further ordered that the Southern Railway hold its train No. 135 at Selma 
fifteen minutes, if for any reason the Atlantic Coast Line train connecting at that 
point is delayed. 

It is further ordered that this order take effect on and after the 2Gth day of 

January, 1904. 

Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 

EXCEPTIONS. 

The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, hereinafter called the company, 
excepts to the order and rule of the North Carolina Corporation Commission, here- 
inafter called the Commission, made in the above-entitled matter, and bearing date 
January 16, 1904, upon the following grounds: 

Fi7~st Exception. 

The company excepts to said order upon the ground that it is not practicable 
for it to extend the run of either the Plymouth train or of the Spring Hope train 
to Selma. That the line of the railroad between Rocky Mount and Selma is a 
part of the main line of the company and is equipped with a seventy-pound rail, 
and in other respects is constructed for the operation over it of heavy coal-burn- 
ing engines, while to the contrary the line from Rocky Mount to Spring Hope, 
commonly called the Nashville branch, and the line from Rocky Mount to 
Plymouth are branch lines and are constructed with a lighter rail, and in other 
respects are constructed and equipped for the use of lighter engines, which are 
fully sufficient and in every respect competent to do the work required of them 
on these branches. That the class of engine which is used by the company upon 
these branches is too light and is not of sufficient power and capacity to make the 
schedule which the order of the Commission requires to be made between Rocky 
Mount and Selma. This schedule will require the run to be made in an hour and 
twenty-five minutes. This train can not leave Rocky Mount before 1 o'clock P. 
M. The train from Norfolk, No. 49, now reaches Rocky Mount at 12:50, and it 
will require at least ten minutes for the transfer of passengers, baggage and mail. 
This train would have to make seven regular stops at stations, and, allowing 
three minutes for each stop, this will consume twenty-five minutes of the schedule 
time. Besides this, it would have to slow down when passing through the several 
towns upon its route, including the town of Wilson, on account of municipal reg- 
ulations in regard to speed, and would also have to slow down at Contentnea, the 
junction of the main line with the old Wilmington and Weldon Railroad. It 
would also have to meet two regular trains of superior class, No. 48, from Wil- 
mington to Norfolk, at Elm City, and No. 40 at Micro, from Jacksonville to Rich- 
mond, which two trains have the right of way. This means that this additional 
train would have to side-track at both places to await the passage of the other 
two trains, and, if they are both on time, those two sidings will consume ten 
minutes at least. If these trains should not be on time, the stoppage would be 
prolonged. So that, in order to meet and keep the connection as ordered by the 
Commission, this train would have to be run at an average speed of not less than 
forty-five miles an hour. The light engines which are used by the company on the 
Nashville branch and upon the Plymouth branch, while fully sufficient to meet all 
the requirements of their operation over said roads, are not of sufficient capacity 



14 N^. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

and strength to make this run. For another reason also it is impracticable to 
extend the run of this Plymouth train. According to the schedule established for 
a number of years, this train is due to leave Rocky Mount upon its return trip to 
Plymouth at 3:55 P. M., making connection at Parmele with the train to Wash- 
ington and also the train to Kinston. Under the schedule established by the Com- 
mission for the extended run of this train to Selma, it would not reach Rocky 
Mount upon its return until 4:20 P. M., or later, and this would delay the other 
two trains for at least one-half hour, and would probably break the connection for 
passengers from the east going to Raleigh and points on the Soutliern via Kinston 
and the Atlantic and North Carolina to Goldsboro. This train over the Kinston 
branch takes passengers from Greenville and other points in the east to Kinston, 
and there connects at 7:37 P. M. with the Atlantic and North Carolina train, 
which in turn connects with the Southern at Goldsboro, leaving for Raleigh at 
9:40 P. M. 

Second Excejjtion. 

To the suggestion of the Commission that this connection can be accomplished 
by running an extra or additional train from Rocky Mount to Selma between the 
hours of 12:50 P. M. and 2:25 P. M. 

To run this train would require an engine, baggage car, and two coaches, and a 
train crew of six men; and this additional cost and expense to the company would 
be at least the sum of $65.00, and there would be no possibility of any increased 
revenue to the company from the operation of this train, but the said sum of 
$65.00 a day would be a total loss, amounting to an annual loss to the company 
of about $23,725.00. The regular fare from Rocky Mount to Selma is $1.35 for 
first-class passengers and $1.15 for second-class passengers. Such an additional 
train, if required to be run, would precede the regular train of this company, 
towit. No. 39, by only half an hour, and returning to Rocky Mount it w^ould fol- 
low a regular train of this company doing local work. No. 40, at a very short in- 
terval. It would carry no passengers either way other than such as would travel 
an equal distance on other trains of this company if this additional train were 
not run. The company has had compiled from the records of the auditor's depart- 
ment a statement of the number of passengers transported over its line from the 
eastern part of the State from Southern Railway points via Selma on train No. 
39, for the six months of April, May, June, July, August and September, 1903, 
which shows a daily average of 11 8-10 passengers; for the three months of Octo- 
ber, November and December, 1903, on train No. 58, a daily average of 3 45-100 
passengers; and on train No. 31 for the same three months, a daily average of 
4 8-10 passengers per day; copies of which said statements are hereto annexed 
and marked Exhibit "A," and are to be taken as a part of these exceptions. A 
statement was also obtained by it from all its conductors in charge of the trains 
mentioned above, which is embodied in Exhibit "B" hereto annexed, which is to 
be taken as a part of the exceptions. The company therefore excepts to the order 
of the Commission in so far as it is to be construed as requiring it to run an addi- 
tional train from Rocky Mount to Selma between the hours above named, because 
to do so would be requiring the company to perform services without compensa- 
tion to it for the same, and tliercby taking its property without due process of 
law, and in violation of the Constitution of this State, and in violation of the 
Constitution of the United States. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 15 

Tliird Exception. 

The company excepts to the order of the Commission upon the ground that the 
Commission has not power or authority under the law of North Carolina to com- 
pel or require this company to put on and operate an extra or additional train 
between Rocky Mount and Selma. 

Fourth Exception. 

The company excepts to the order of the Commission upon the ground that it is 
not practicable for the company to make the said connection at Selma, as re- 
quired by the order of the Commission, 'fl'ithout putting on an extra or additional 
train to do so, and this company contends the Commission has not the power 
to require it to do. 

Fifth Exception. 

That the order of the Commission requiring this company to make the connec- 
tion at Selma is unreasonable, because this company is already affording ample 
and sufficienc accommodations for passengers from the east to Selma and points 
on the Southern Railway, and it does this in the following ways: 

The train from Rocky Mount, south-bound, in the early morning, makes close 
connection at Goldsboro at 6 : 50 o'clock with the Southern for Raleigh and all 
points west. 

The trains from Norfolk and Richmond make close connection at Goldsboro and 
Selma with the night train on the Southern for Raleigh and all points west. 

The train from Weldon to Kinston makes close connection at Kinston with the 
Atlantic and North Carolina train for Goldsboro which train in turn makes close 
connection with the Southern at Goldsboro at 9:40 P. M. for Raleigh and all 
points west. 

The train, No. 39, from Washington to Jacksonville, is due at Selma at 2:50 
P. M., and the accommodation train. No. 183, on the Southern, from Selma to 
Raleigh and all points west, is scheduled tO' leave Selma at 3:25 P. M. 

Train No , from Jacksonville to Washington, is due to arrive at Selma at 

2:10 o'clock, and makes close connection there with the Southern, which leaves 
Selma at 2:25 P. M. for Raleigh and all points west. 

Two trains leave Wilmington for the north, the first at 9:30 A. M., No. 48, and 
the other. No. 42, at 6:50 P. M. Both of these trains make close connection at 
Goldsboro with, the Southern trains for Raleigh and all points west. 

No. 34, leaving Smithfield at 7:00 A. M., makes close connection at Selma with 
the Southern going west for Raleigh and all points beyond, and the same train 
makes close connection at Weldon with the Seaboard train for Raleigh, and for 
Seaboard points south and west. 

No. 102 leaves Goldsboro for Norfolk at 7:30 A. M., and makes close connec- 
tion at Hobgood with No. 58, the train from Kinston to Weldon, and there with 
the Seaboard for Raleigh and points west. 

Particular attention is given herein to the connection over the Southern. 
Equally good connections, both going and returning, are made at Weldon with 
the Seaboard for Raleigh and other points west. There are few places in the ter- 
ritory served by this company from which a passenger cannot reach Raleigh and 
other points on the Southern and Seaboard Railroads by either one of two differ-

ent trains on the same day, all of which will appear by the schedule and reports 
hereto attached. While the morning train from Rocky Mount to Goldsboro leaves 
Rocky Mount at an early hour, the schedule was changed recently at the sugges- 
tion of this Commission for the purpose of making close connection at Goldsboro 
with the Soutliern, which had previously advanced its hour for leaving Goldsboro. 
Attached hereto is a sketch showing the connection from the eastern part of 
this State to Raleigh by way of the Coast Line, the Southern, and the Seaboard, 
and the company files it as a part of these exceptions, marked Exhibit "C." 

All the matters and things herein alleged the company is ready to establish 
before this Commission by competent evidence. 

Wherefore, these exceptions considered, the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Com- 
pany respectfully asks that the order made on January IG, 1904, by the North 
Carolina Corporation Commission be revoked.

order overruling exceptions. 

This cause coming on to be heard upon exception by Atlantic Coast Line Rail- 
road Company, and being heard on the 2d day of February, 1904, the Atlantic 
Coast Line Railroad Company being represented by Junius Davis, Esq., and 
James H. Pou, Esq., counsel; and after considering the evidence introduced, and 
matter appearing from the record in the case, and from files in the office of the 
Corporation Commission, the following facts pertinent to the exception appear: 

The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company operates a through passenger train, 
No. 39, from Richmond to Jacksonville. This train is scheduled to leave Rich- 
mond at 9:05 A. M., arrive at South Rocky Mount at 1:10 P. M., and leave at 
1:30 P. M. and arrive at Selma at 2:50 P. M. For about ten years this train was 
scheduled to make close connection at Selma with local passenger train No. 135 
of the Southern Railway at Selma. This latter train was scheduled to leave 
Goldsboro at 2 P. M., Selma at 3 P. M., Raleigh at 3:52 P. M., Durham all 
.... P. M., and arrive at Greensboro at 6:35 P. M. The Atlantic Coast Line 
Railroad Company now operates, and for about ten years has operated, passenger 
trains on its branch roads which center at South Rocky Mount, as follows: 

Train No. G8 from Spring Hope to South Rocky Mount, leaving Spring Hope at 
11:20 A. M. and arriving at South Rocky Mount at 12:10 P. M. 

Train No. 49 from Norfolk to South Rocky Mount, leaving Norfolk at 9 A. M. 
and arriving at South Rocky Mount at 12:50 P. M. 

Train No. 65 from Plymouth to South Rocky Mount, leaving Plymouth at 7:30 
A. M., arriving at Parmele at 9:10 A. M., at Tarboro at 10 A. M. and at South 
Rocky Mount at 10:35 A. M. 

Train No. 71 from Washington to Parmele, leaving Washington at 8 A. M. and 
arriving at Parmele at 8:55 A. M., and there making connection with a train 
from Plymouth to South Rocky Mount. 

Train No. 58 from Kinston to Weldon, leaving Kinston at 7:30 A. M., arriving 
at Parmele at 9:10 A. M., and there making connection with train No. 65 from 
Plymouth to South Rocky Mount, arriving at Hobgood at 9:55 A. M., and there

making connection with train No. 49 from Norfolk to South Rocky Mount and 
arriving at Weldon at 11:10. 

By means of these branch roads connecting with No. 39 the Atlantic Coast 
Line's train from Richmond to Jacksonville, which in turn connected with train 
No, 135 of the Southern Railway at Selma, the greater portion of the section of 
the country reached by the said branch roads was for years furnished the nearest 
and cheapest route of travel to Raleigh and other Southern Railway points. The 
greater portion of the travel between this Atlantic Coast Line territory and 
Southern Railway points was by this route. It is admitted in the correspondence 
of the Atlantic Coast Line in this matter that this w^as the most important con- 
nection, being the principal outlet for passengers en route from eastern Carolina 
territory to Raleigh and other Southern Railway points. There seems to have 
been no complaint about the failure of these railroad companies to keep this 
schedule and make this connection until about the year 1900. The Atlantic Coast 
Line Company informs the Commission that "this matter has been a frequent 
source of correspondence between this company and the Southern Railway Com- 
pany since 1900; that during this time frequent complaints have been made to 
this company by the Southern Railway Company of its failure to make schedule 
time at Selma," and the Atlantic Coast Line furnished the Commission with 
copies of daily reports of the arrival of train No, 39 at Selma from August 1, 
1903, to December 10, 1903, showing an average daily delay in the arriving time 
of this train at that point of thirty-four minutes. From these reports it appears 
that train No. 39 was more than thirty minutes late on arriving at Selma six- 
teen times in the month of October, and twenty-eight times during the period 
from October 26th to December 10, 1903; so that this schedule was practically 
broken by the Atlantic Coast Line's failure to keep it. On October 11, 1903, the 
Southern Railway changed its schedule on train No. 135 so as to leave Goldsboro 
at 1:35 instead of 2:05 P. M., Selma at 2:25 P. M. instead of 3 P. M., Raleigh at 
3:25 P. M. instead of 3:52 P. M,, and arrive at Greensboro at 6:35 P. M., as it 
formerly did; and thus the connection, which is admitted by the Atlantic Coast 
Line Company to have been the principal outlet for passengers en route from 
eastern Carolina territory to Raleigh and other Southern Railway points, was 
broken. 

The reason given by the Southern Railway for changing its schedule at Golds- 
boro and Selma, which it had kept for about ten years, was that it was necessary 
to have more time between Selma and Greensboro, at which last-named place train 
No. 135 was scheduled to make close connection wath through Southern Railway 
trains for the South and West ; that in order to make this connection they had to 
run at too fast a speed, and then often failed. This connection of the Southern 
Railway with its through trains is a most important one to all points on the 
Southern Railway between Goldsboro and Greensboro, and also from the eastern 
part of the State. Deducting three minutes for each stop between Selma and 
Greensboro, this last schedule would require the Southern Railway to make thirty- 
eight miles an hour in order to arrive at Greensboro on schedule time. 

The reason assigned by the Atlantic Coast Line for its failure to keep its sched- 
ule in arriving at Selma on No. 39 was that this is a through passenger train 
carrying mail and express from New York to Jacksonville, and that in some in- 
stances the northern connections failed to deliver the train at Richmond on 
schedule time, and that there was usually added to this train one or more extra

18 . N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

express cars, making ten or more cars in all in the train; and that the increase 
of business along the line from Richmond to Selma made it necessary to consume 
more time at the various stops. The speed of this train is reported by the 
Atlantic Coast Line to the Commission to be between Richmond and South Rocky 
Mount 29.63 miles per hour. Deducting arbitraries at Petersburg, Emporia, 
Weldon and Rocky Mount proper, the speed is 32.22 miles per hour. From South 
Rocky Mount to Selma, without deducting arbitraries, the speed is 30.75 miles per 
hour. Deducting the time lost by meeting two superior passenger trains, the 
speed is 34.16 miles per hour. 

Admitting that the connection at Selma with the Southern Railway local pas- 
senger train No. 135 was the principal outlet from eastern Carolina for Raleigh 
and other points on the Southern Railway, the Atlantic Coast Line, by way of 
exception, insists that the order of this Commission requiring the Atlantic Coast 
Line to make this connection at Selma is unreasonable, because this company is 
already affording ample and sufficient accommodation from the east to Selma 
and points on the Southern Railway by means of the following trains: 

1. Train No. 1, from Rocky Mount to Wilmington, leaving Rocky Mount at 
5:45 A. M. and arriving at Goldsboro at 6:50 A. M., and there connecting with 
the Southern Railway's local passenger train No. 107 from Goldsboro to Greens- 
boro, leaving Goldsboro at 6:50 A. M., arriving at Selma at 7:40 A. M., Raleigh 
at 8:40 A. M., and at Greensboro at 11:59 A. M. This Atlantic Coast Line train 
furnishes very good service to Rocky Mount, Wilson and all points between Rocky 
Mount and Goldsboro by connecting with one of the two local passenger trains 
operated by the Southern Railway between Goldsboro and Greensboro, but it does 
not afford any facilities for passengers from Kinston, Greenville, Washington, 
Plymouth and Parmele, unless such passengers would leave their homes on the 
early morning of the day before in order to reach Rocky Mount, nor to passengers 
from Norfolk, Hobgood, Tarboro, Spring Hope and Nashville, unless they would 
leave their homes the evening of the day before to reach Rocky Mount. In other 
words, this train does not connect with any one of the branches of the Atlantic 
Coast Line which center at Rocky Mount. 

2. The trains from Norfolk and Richmond make close connection at Goldsboro 
and Selma with the night train on the Southern Railway for Raleigh and all 
points west. 

It is true that the Atlantic Coast Line operates train No. 103 from Norfolk to 

Goldsboro, leaving Norfolk at 4 P. M., Hobgood at P. M., Tarboro at 7:27 

P. M., and arriving at South Rocky Mount at 7:59 P. M., and leaving South 
Rocky Mount at 8:02 P. M., and arriving at Goldsboro at 9:25 P. M. This train 
serves passengers between Norfolk and Goldsboro. It is also true tliat the Atlan- 
tic Coast Line operates a train. No. 51, from Richmond to Sniillifleld, leaving 
Richmond at 4:10 P. M. and arriving at South Rocky Mount at 8:10 P. M., and 
leaving Rocky Mount at .... P. M. and arriving at Selma at 9:45 P. M. This 
train serves the territory from Weldon to Selma. These trains make connection 

with Southern Railway train No , running from Goldsboro to Greensboro. 

The train of the Southern Railway with which these trains connect is a mixed or 
accommodation train, primarily a freight train with passenger coaches attached, 
not suited for local service by reason of its being a night schedule as well as its 
being a very slow schedule. The schedule on this train seems to be about fifteen 
miles per hour. It does local car-load work. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 19 

3. Train No, 39, which is due at Selma at 2:50 P. M., connects with accommo- 
dation train No. 183 on the Southern Railway at Selma, which is scheduled to 
leave Selma for the west at 3:25 P. M. This latter train is a local freight train 
with caboose attached and not adapted to doing passenger service. 

4. One other train relied on is No. 102, Atlantic Coast Line, which leaves Golds- 
boro for Norfolk at 7:30 A. M. and makes close connection at Ilobgood with 
No. 58, the Atlantic Coast Line's train from Kinston to Weldon, and this train, 
No. 58, leaves Kinston, as stated above, at 7:30 A. M. and arrives at Weldon at 
11:10 A. M. and connects at Weldon with the Seaboard Air Line for Raleigh and 
Durham and points west of Durham. This affords certain fa-cilities for reaching 
Raleigh and Durham; and if the Seaboard Air Line train from Portsmouth to 
Atlanta arrives at Henderson on schedule time, and if the Seaboard Air Line 
train from Henderson to Durham arrives at Durham on schedule time, it would 
also afford facilities for reaching all points on the Southern Railway west of Dur- 
ham. The objection to this route is that it is further from the greater portion of 
the Atlantic Coast Line territory, and therefore the expense is greater and the 
time longer, and there is more or less uncertainty of the connection at Durham. 
It is admitted that the usual route of travel from this territory was by South 
Rocky Mount and Selma. It is practicable to extend the run of the train on the 
Plymouth Branch to Selma. The distance from Plymouth to South Rocky Mount 
is sixty-eight miles^ and from South Rocky Mount to Selma is forty-two miles. 
This train arrives at South Rocky Mount at 10:35 A. M. and lies over there until 
3:55 P. M. There is no force in the suggestion that if this train, instead of 
leaving South Rocky Mount for Plymouth at 3:55, as the schedule now is, it 
would leave at 4:20 P. M., and that thereby the connection, which is now made by 
means of this branch with the Weldon and Kinston Branch at Parmele, which in 
turn connects with the Atlantic and North Carolina at Kinston, would be broken, 
for the reason that the arriving time of the Weldon and Kinston Branch at Kins- 
ton is 6:45, and the leaving time of the Atlantic and North Carolina at Kinston 
for Goldsboro is 7:37. There is therefore a margin of forty-eight minutes be- 
tween the arriving time of the Atlantic Coast Line and leaving time of the Atlan- 
tic and North Carolina at Kinston. 

It is also practicable to extend the run of the train on the Nashville Branch 
from South Rocky Mount to Selma. The distance from Spring Hope to South 
Rocky Mount is twenty miles, and this train arrives at South Rocky Mount at 
12:10 P. M. and lies over there until 4 P. M., when it returns to Spring Hope. 
It is claimed by the Atlantic Coast Line Company that the engine and crew on 
the train, except the baggage master, are engaged in switching all the time that 
they are at Rocky Mount. 

There is within the territory served by these branch lines approximately 400,000 
inhabitants. The report of the Atlantic Coast Line Company to this Commission 
for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1903, shows net earnings from operation in 
North Carolina amounting to $1,943,116.63, and that there was a surplus of 
$1,293,983.54 after paying interest on its debts and 5 per cent, dividends on its 
stock, both common and preferred, from the net earnings of the company's entire 
line. On a mileage basis this will show that there was a surplus of net earnings 
in North Carolina for that year of approximately $324,493. 

The Commission is of the opinion that the facilities given heretofore by the 
Atlantic Coast Line Company to the traveling public should not be lessened; that

the connection furnished passengers from the Washington Branch, the Norfolk 
and Carolina Branch, the Plymouth Branch and the Nashville Branch with 
No, 135 Southern Railway passenger train at Selma, and also for all points be- 
tween Rocky Mount and Selma, for nearly ten years, should be restored; that if 
this cannot be done by the Atlantic Coast Line train No. 39, as formerly, on 
account of this train being heavier, containing usually one or more extra express 
cars, and in all usually ten or more cars, and on account of increase in business 
between Richmond and Selma, which necessitates longer stops, then other facili- 
ties should be furnished by the Atlantic Coast Line Companj^; that this connec- 
tion, which was the principal outlet for passengers from eastern Carolina to Selma 
and other Southern Railway points for the last ten years, instead of being aban- 
doned, should be made permanent and certain, and that this result be accom- 
plished by carrying out the order heretofore made in this Court. It is ordered, 
therefore, that the exceptions be and they are hereby overruled.

The jury find the issues submitted to them as follows : 

ISSUES VERDICT. 

L Is it practicable for train No. 39 of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, due to 
arrive at Selma at 2:50 P. M., to make connection at Selma with train No. 135, 
west-bound, of the Southern Railway, due to leave Selma at 2:25 P. M. ? 

Answer: No. 

2. Is it practicable to make said connection by extending the run of the Ply- 
mouth train daily from Plymouth to Selma and return; and if so, what would be

and if so, what would be the additional expense ? 

Answer: No. 

4. In order to make such connection, would defendant company have to run an 
additional train on its main line from Rocky Mount to Selma? 

Answer: Yes. 

5. Is it practicable for said train to safely run the schedule prescribed in plain- 
tiff's order, having due regard to the number of trains and number of stops on 
defendant's main line from Rocky Mount to Selma?

FINDINGS AND ORDER ANID JUDGMENT, FILED MAY 11, 1904. 

Wake County — Superior Court, April Term, 1904. 

State of North Carolina, ex rel. North Carolina Corporation Commission, 

against 
Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company. 

The jury having responded to the several issues, the cause came on to be heard 
upon the motions of plaintiff and of defendant for judgment upon the issues. In 
addition to the facts found by the jury in response to the issues submitted, cer- 
tain facts were admitted. 

The schedules of the defendant company and of the Southern Railway Company 
and Seaboard Air Line were admitted in evidence and also as established acts in 
the cause for the purpose of showing the various routes and railroad connections 
from eastern North Carolina to Raleigh and points west, and also for the purpose 
of showing the established connections between trains on defendant's road and the 
Southern Railway at Goldsboro and Selma, whereby passengers leaving Rocky 
Mount and other points on defendant's line can go west. 

The city of Goldsboro is on the Southern Railway, twenty miles east of Selma, 
and according to these schedules there are three passenger trains daily from 
Rocky Mount to Goldsboro on defendant's road, twO' of which, when on time, make 
close connection with Southern Railway trains going west — one in early morn- 
ing and one at 9:40 at night. It is admitted by these schedules that defendant 
company runs four passenger trains daily each way between Rocky Mount and 
Selma on its main line, and that one of these trains is scheduled to leave Rocky 
Mount at 8:10 P. M. and to arrive at Selma about 9:50 P. M., about one hour 
before the Southern Railway train is scheduled to leave for points west. 

With the exception that the afternoon connection between defendant's train, 
No. 39, and the train No. 135 of the Southern Railway at Selma does not now 
exist, it is admitted that in all other respects defendant furnishes ample facilities 
for transportation of passengers on its lines. The afternoon connection at 2:50 
P. M. between defendant's train No. 39 and Southern Railway train No. 135 existed 
for the past ten years. It is admitted that No. 39 is a through train from Richmond 
to points in Florida and is dependent on northern connections at Richmond, 
which frequently delay departure of No. 39 from Richmond, whereby No. 39 in 
the past twelve months has failed very frequently to arrive at Selma in time to 
connect with No. 135. It appears from the findings of the Corporation Commis- 
sion that (presumably under section 21 of the act creating the Commission) the 
Commissioners investigated that connection and found as a fact that it is not 
practicable for defendant company to maintain that connection with existing train 



22 N. C. CORPOEuVTION COMMISSION. 

No. 39, as it is so frequently behind schedule. The Southern Kailway Company 
changed its schedule so No. 135 is now due at Selma at 2:25 P. M. The schedule 
of No. 39 remains unchanged. From the findings of fact by the jury it appears 
that defendant company cannot make close connection at Selma with No. 13o 
Southern Railway train without putting on its main line an additional train from 
Rocky Mount to Selma and return. 

Upon these facts and the issues as answered by the jury the defendant con- 
tends : 

1. That the Corporation Commission has no power under the act of the General 
Assembly to compel defendant to operate an additional train from Rocky Mount 
to Selma and return for the sole purpose of connecting closely with another rail- 
road company's train. 

2. That the General Assembly of North Carolina has no power itself to compel 
defendant to operate such additional train at a loss, the fact being admitted that 
defendant is now operating four trains daily each way between same points, and 
the defendant contends that the exercise of such power would be in violation of 
the Fourteenth Amendment of the Federal Constitution. 

I am of the opinion that section 1957 of The Code, subdiv. 9, gives to the rail- 
road companies the right themselves "to regulate the time and manner in which 
passengers and property shall be transported," subject to the legislative directions 
that each railroad company shall run one passenger train at least each way over 
its line every week day. I have been unable to find anything in the act creating 
the Corporation Commission, or in any other act, that directly or by necessary 
implication repeals such section of The Code. I am forced to the conclusion, as 
matter of law, that the General Assembly has not conferred on the Commission 
power to require one railroad company to operate an additional train on its line 
for the sole purpose of making a close connection with the train of another rail- 
way company, however convenient such connection may be. I think the powers 
conferred upon the Commission and enumerated in the twenty-six subdivisions of 
section 2 of the act do not confer such authority. Section 21 gives the power to 
do just what was done in respect to trains No. 39 and No. 135, viz., that the Com- 
mission might investigate the connections existing at Selma between those trains. 
Having decided that better and closer connections between those trains was not 
practical, I think the Commission exhausted the power conferred by the Legisla- 
ture. 

It is unnecessary that I consider defendant's second contention. 

Let the order appealed from be reversed and costs taxed against plaintiff, and 

defendant go without day.

appears in the transcript on appeal tried before his Honor George H. Brown, Jr.. 
at the April Term, 1904, of the Superior Court of Wake County. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 23 

The record sent up by the Corporation Commission upon said appeal is set out 
in the transcript sent by the Clerk of said Court to the Supreme Court. 
The plaintiff asked that the following issues be submitted to the jury: 

1. Is it practicable for the Atlantic Coast Line Railway Company, the defendant 
in this case, to make connection with the trains on the Southern Railway going 
west by 2:40 P. M.? 

2. Is it reasonable that they should make such connection? 

3. Would the traveling public be convenienced and benefited by said connection ? 
The defendant asked that the following issues be submitted to the jury: 

1. Is it practicable for train No. 39 of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, due to 
arrive at Selma at 2:50 P. M., to make connection at Selma with train No. 135, 
west-bound, of the Southern Railway, due to leave Selma at 2:25 P, M. ? 

2. Is it practicable for train No. 65, known as the Plymouth train, of the Atlan- 
tic Coast Line Railroad Company, to make connection with Southern train 
No. 135, west-bound, at Selma at 2:25 P. M.? 

3. Is it practicable for train No. 68 of the Atlantic Coast Line, known as the 
Spring Hope train, to perform all the service now required of it, and in addition 
thereto connect at Selma at 2:25 P. M. with the Southern train, west-bound. 
No. 135? 

4. What would be the daily cost of running a train from Rocky Mount to 
Selma and back between the hours of 1 and 4 oclock P. M. ? 

5. Would the revenue derived from the increased travel (if there be any in- 
crease) over the Atlantic Coast Line because of said additional train equal the 
additional cost of running the same ? 

6. Would the increased travel, if any, caused by said additional train be suffi- 
cient to pay the cost thereof and yield to the Atlantic Coast Line a reasonable 
profit upon the operation of said train? 

7. Is the route from most points on the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad in north- 
eastern North Carolina, via Weldon to Raleigh and Durham, and points on the 
Southern Railway west of Durham, practically as quick and as cheap as the 
route via Selma would be if the connection ordered by the Corporation Commis- 
sion were made? 

8. Would it be practicable for a train of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Com- 
pany leaving Rocky Mount at 1 or 1:10 P. M. to make certain connections Avith 
the Southern Railway at Selma at 2:25 or 2:40 P. M. ? 

9. Will it be practicable for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company to run 
an additional or separate train from Rocky Mount to Selma between the hour-* 
fixed by the Corporation Commission in their order? 

His Honor submitted the following issues: 

1. Is it practicable for train No. 39 of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad due to 
arrive at Selma at 2:50 P. M. to make connection at Selma with train No. 135,

tiff's order, having due regard to the number of trains and number of stops on 
defendant's main line from Rocky Mount to Selma ? 

6. What would be the daily cost of operating such train from Rocky Mount to 
Selma and return ? 

7. What would be the probable daily receipts from such train? 

8. Is it reasonable and proper that, for convenience of the traveling public, the 
defendant company should be required to make such connection? 

Plaintiff excepted to the issues submitted, but, the same having been submitted, 
asked that the following additional issues be submitted also, viz.: 

1. What would be the cost of extending the run of the train from Spring Hope 
to Selma ? 

2. What would be the cost of extending the run of the train from Plymouth to 
Selma ? 

3. Is the surplus net revenue derived by the defendant from its entire passenger 
business in North Carolina, after paying operating expenses, fixed charges and a 
reasonable dividend, more than sufficient to pay the expenses of the train ordered 
by the plaintiff? 

The Court declined to submit the additional issues as asked by plaintiff, to 
which the plaintiff excepted. 

The plaintiff excepted to the judgment and assigns the following errors: 

1. Tlie errors contained in the record proper and arising from the exceptions to 
the evidence, especially as from the refusal of his Honor to permit the plaintiff 
to show the revenue derived for the twelve months ending February 26, 1904, 
from the sale of tickets at the following stations: Wilson, Elm City, Rocky 
Mount, Spring Hope, Nashville, Tarboro, Conetoe, Greenville, Washington, Battle- 
boro, Whitaker, Black Creek, Bethel, Parmele, Robesonville, Everett's, Pactolus 
and Jamesville; and from the refusal of his Honor to permit the plaintiff to show 
the receipts from freight shipped from the above-mentioned points during the same 
period. 

2. His Honor erred in refusing to submit to the jury the issues tendered by the 
plaintiff. 

3. His Honor erred in submitting to the jury the issues as appear in the record. 

4. His Honor erred in refusing to submit the additional issues tendered by 
plaintiff. 

5. His Honor erred in refusing to give the special instructions to the jury 
asked for by the plaintiff. 

6. His Honor erred in directing the jury to answer the first issue "No." 

7. His Honor erred in directing the jury to answer the second issue "No." 

8. His Honor erred in directing the jury to answer the third issue "No." 

9. His Honor erred in instructing the jury to answer the fourth issue "Yes." 

10. His Honor erred in charging the jury that the order of the plaintiff limited 
the arrival of the train at Selma to 2:25 instead of 2:40 P. M., it appearing that 
the Corporation Commission had directed the Southern Railway train to be held 
fifteen minutes, upon notice, beyond its schedule time for leaving Selma, and it 
further appearing that the Southern Railway had submitted to that oider of the 
Commissioners and had advised the defendant thereof. 

11. His Honor erred in charging the jury that the financial condition of the 
defendant is not involved in the determination of any of the issues submitted. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 25 

12. His Honor erred in rendering the judgment set out in the record. 

The Court denied plaintiff's motion for a new trial, and plaintiff excepted. 

From the judgment set out in the record plaintiffs appealed. Case settled by 

consent by the Judge, August 27, 1904.

OPINION OF SUPREME COURT. 

Clark, C. J., after stating the facts, says: For more than ten years the people 
of a large part of the eastern portion of the State, having occasion to come to the 
capital or to the adjacent central section, have found their most direct and con- 
venient route to be via Selma, at which point, by its schedule, the south-bound 
train, No. 39, of the defendant, Atlantic Coast Line, delivered its passengers at 
2:50 P. M. daily, in time to connect with the Southern Railway west-bound train, 
No. 135, from Goldsboro to Greensboro. On October 3, 1903, the Southern noti- 
fied the Corporation Commission that, owing to the condition of its track, it was 
dangerous to maintain its speed— thirty-eight miles per hour — on its train, 
No. 135, and proposed to leave Goldsboro thirty minutes sooner, which would 
cause its arrival a few minutes earlier at Selma. This the Commission found to 
be proper and reasonable. It was brought to the attention of the Commission, 
by proper complaint made, that for many months the Atlantic Coast Line had 
failed to make this afternoon connection regularly at Selma at its schedule time, 
to the great inconvenience of the traveling public, and it was asked to order the 
afternoon connection to be resumed and observed. After much correspondence 
with the officials of both roads, the Commission, on December 8, 1903, ordered that 
the afternoon connection should be made, and to that end directed that the defend- 
ant should quicken its schedule so as to arrive at Selma at 2:25 instead of 2:50 
P. M., as before — an advance of twenty-five minutes; but as the same order re- 
quired the Southern train to wait fifteen minutes whenever the Atlantic Coast 
Line was delayed for any cause, the order practically required the defendant to 
arrive ten minutes earlier. Objection being taken, the order was suspended and 
both companies were summoned before the Corporation Commission, and, after 
investigation and argument, on January 16, 1904, the order was renewed. The 
Southern thereupon acquiesced in the order. The defendant alone filed exceptions, 
upon which testimony and argument were heard, and the Commission renewed its 
order in the same terms, 18 February, 1904. On appeal by the defendant to the 
Superior Court, there were sundry issues submitted over the exception of the Cor- 
poration Commission. But as the order of the Commission appealed from simply 
directed the connection to be made as in former years, prescribing nO' details of 
the method (which was left to the judgment of the defendant itself) save an 
acceleration of twenty-five minutes, subject to a delay of the Southern train of 
fifteen minutes when the defendant's train should be late, we think the matter 
could have been and was fully disposed of by affirmative responses of the jury to 
the eighth issue — "Is it reasonable and proper that, for convenience of the travel- 
ing public, the defendant company should be required to make such connec- 
tion?" — taken together with the findings upon the sixth and seventh issues, that 
even if an additional train should have to be put on between Rocky Mount and 
Selma, the loss to the defendant would be only fifteen dollars per day (which 
might be overcome by the increased travel induced by certainty of connection). 



26 X. C. CORrOEATION COMMISSION. 

and the official returns made b}^ the defendant to the Commission, 30 June, 1903, 
as required by law, and which are in the evidence, that the net earnings of the 
defendant from its operation in North Carolina amounted for the year ending 
30 June, 1903, to $1,903,116.63, with a surplus of nearly $1,300,000 after paying 
interest on its debts and five per cent, dividends on its stock, both common and 
preferred, from the net earnings of the entire line. It is surely sufficiently large, 
as it stands, to justify the affirmation of the order of the Corporation Commission 
that this great inconvenience to the public should be avoided, even at a cost to the 
defendant of fifteen dollars per day, when the net earnings of the defendant from 
all its operations in this State approximate $2,000,000 annually, and the net sur- 
plus of the defendant's whole system, after payment of interest on its debts and 
dividends on its stock (whether watered or not), amounts to near $1,300,000 
annually. And upon such verdict the judge below should have entered judgment 
affirming the order of the Corporation Commission, and we should reverse hi& 
judgment and enter such judgment here, provided ( 1 ) the Legislature has con- 
ferred such authority upon the Commission, (2) and the Legislature was not 
restrained by any provision of the State or Federal Constitution from granting 
such authority. Mr. Davis, the able and accomplished counsel of the defendant, 
states this clearly in his brief. "The defendant's contentions, in brief, are as 
follows: 1. That the Corporation Commission had no power or authority to make 
the order in question in this cause. 2. That the order is in violation of the Con- 
stitution of the United States and the State of North Carolina. 3. That the order 
is unreasonable and unjust." His third contention is settled by the verdict and 
finding, as above stated. As to the first proposition, we think the General Assem- 
bly clearly intended to confer and did confer the power upon the Commission to 
order connection made by any two railroads when the public convenience required 
it and the order was just and reasonable. This is not an ordinary arbitrary 
power; for, as in this case, such order is subject to review by a Judge and jury 
on an appeal to the Superior Court, whence a further appeal lies to this Court. 

Section 1 of the Corporation Commission Act (Act 1899, chap. 164), in enumer- 
ating the qualifications, the duties and powers of the Commission, provides that 
"They shall have such general control and supervision of all railroad * * * 
companies or corporations and of all other companies or corporations engaged in 
tlie carrying of freight or passengers * * ""' necessary to carry into effect the 
provisions of this act." Section 21 of the act provides that "All common carriers 
subject to the provisions of this act shall, according to their powers, afford all 
reasonable, proper and eqiurl facilities for the interchange of traffic between their 
respective lines and for the forwarding and delivering of passengers and freight 
to and from their several lines and those connecting therewith, * * * and 
connecting lines shall be required to make as close connection as practicable for 
the convenience of the traveling public." This provision is positive, clear and 
mandatory. Common carriers are (1) to afford all reasonable, proper and equal 
facilities for the interchange of traffic and forwarding freight and passengers. 
This would include both the place and time of delivery and forwarding of passen- 
gers and freight. The terms of the law are general and cannot be interpreted to 
mean alone llio place at which passengers and freight are to be delivered; it does 
not mean simply facility for deliver}^, which might be confined to the place, but 
also requires facility for forwarding, which includes time as well, and prohibits 
such management as would produce delay in forwarding passengers. This re- 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 27 

quires close connection in point of time with connecting lines. (2) In the second 
place, common carriers are "to make as close connection as practicable for the 
convenience of the traveling public." The defendant insists that this last re- 
quirement means simply a physical connection — that is, a track connection. It is 
contended that the demands of the law would be met by a simple joining of rail- 
road iron of one railroad to that of another, regardless of the time of the delivery 
of passengers at the junction and of their finding the means of "traveling" on or 
continuing their journey, and of the delays and inconveiences resulting from a 
failure to make connection of trains. The statement of this proposition, even 
if the acts were ambiguous, contains its own refutation. But the language is 
plain and unequivocal, and, as Mr. Argo, of counsel for the Commission, well says, 
"The requirement is that 'connecting lines shall make as close connection as prac- 
ticable for the convenience of the traveling public' This means that those rail- 
roads have, or pretend to have, a physical connection — a connection of tracks — 
shall also have as close a connection of trains as practicable, in order to secure 
the convenience of the 'traveling public' It is well known that the principal 
inconvenience attendant upon traveling arises from delays resulting from failure 
of trains to connect according to time schedules. It would contribute little to 
the convenience of the traveler to be dumped out upon a track making a 'physical 
connection' and be compelled to wait for hours, frequently without food or ade- 
quate shelter, and in the night, for a train upon which he might proceed on his 
way. The connection required is one of trains as well as of tracks. The public 
cannot travel upon a track alone, nor upon a train without a track; both are 
required to furnish facilities for traveling at all, and a close connection of both 
to secure the convenience of the traveling public." 

It is true that section 1957 (9) of The Code of 1883, originally enacted in 
1871-'72, gave to railroad companies themselves the right to "regulate the time 
and manner in which passengers and property shall be transported," but by the 
Act of 1891, chap. 320. creating a Railroad Commission, the State made a radical 
change in its attitude towards railroads. It asserted its power to supervise and 
regulate their conduct, forbade discrimination and issuance of free passes, con- 
ferred upon the Railroad Commission the power to regulate and to fix their 
charges for freight and passengers, to prohibit rebates, to make joint through 
rates, to make personal visitation of all railroad offices and places of business, to 
examine their officers, agents and employees under oath, to require all contracts 
and agreements between railroads as to their business in this State, to be sub- 
mitted for approval, to require annual reports from the railroads, to require the 
railroads to make repairs to their tracks and additions to or changes of their sta- 
tions, forbade the abandonment of any station without the permission of the 
Commission, to require (if the Commission saw fit) separate accommodations for 
the races at the stations and in the cars, and "that connecting lines shall be 
required to make as close connection as practicable for the convenience of the 
traveling public," and many other matters which before that had been left to the 
railroads themselves. This act was passed after the fullest discussion for years 
before the people of the State. It expressed their deliberate conviction that the 
time had arrived when the State, in the public interests, should supervise and con- 
trol the charges and the conduct of common carriers, including express companies, 
telegraph, telephones and steam-boats. Similar legislation had preceded our act 
in England, in the Federal Congress and in many of our sister States. Similar 



^b A. C. COKPOKATION COMMISSION. 

legislation has now been adopted in most of the States. Tlie Act of 1891 modified 
The Code, section 1957 (9), certainly to the extent that the right formerly con- 
ferred on railroad companies of fixing the time of running tlieir trains was made 
subject to the power of the Commission to require connections to be made 
wherever public convenience should require this to be done, and the order was 
reasonable and just. That act (1891, chap. 320) had a repealing clause as to 
all previous legislation in contlict with it. The present Act of 1899 renewed the 
general provisions of the Railroad Commission law, with some extension of its 
powers and changes, but re-enacting verbatim the provision requiring connections 
to be made and giving the Corporation Commission "general control and super- 
vision of all railroads," with all powers "necessary to carry out the provisions of 
this act." 

In this case the excuse of the defendant for its often missing connection at 
Selma since 1900 is that train No. 39 was a through train, and that its increase 
in business made it more and more difficult to get to Selma in time. It may be 
natural that the officers of the company, looking to profits, should prefer the 
through business to the neglect of the convenience of the people of North Caro- 
lina, and should be reluctant to avoid the delay caused by heavy through business 
by putting fifteen dollars of its profits into affording the required convenience by 
an additional train^ if necessary. But it is precisely because just and proper 
regard for public convenience did not always coincide with the largest profit to 
the corporation that the State had to enact a statute giving to a railroad or the 
Corporation Commission the power to regulate their rates, require suitable con- 
nections to be made, and a general supervision of their conduct. An act of the 
Legislature or order of the Commission reducing the defendant's charges for 
freight and passengers many hundreds of thousands of dollars would be valid if 
it left enough profit, over running expenses, "with economical salaries and man- 
agement (of which the Court will judge) to pay interest on its bona fide debt and 
some profit to stockholders." Railroad v. VVallinan, 143 U. S. 

It follows that this order^ even if it cost the defendant fifteen dollars per day, 
is in the power of the Commission if it serves public convenience. 

The other point as to the constitutional power of the Legislature to so enact is 
also well settled. The general power of the Legislature to provide reasonable 
rules and regulations, directly or through a commission, has been held by us in 
Express Co. v. Railroad, 111 N. C, 472; in Corporation Commission v. Railroad, 
127 N. C, 288, and cases there cited. Among the Federal decisions this was 
asserted in MunU'V. Illinois, 94 U. S., 113, and has been reiterated in numerous 
cases since, collected 9 Rose's Notes, pp. 22-55. The doctrine is thus stated in 
People V. Budd, 117 N. Y.; 5 L. R. A., 566: "Common carriers exercise a sort of 
public office and have duties to perform in which the public is interested. Navi- 
gation Co. v. Bank, 6 How., 382. Their business is therefore afi'ected with a pub- 
lic interest within the meaning of the doctrine which Lord Hale has so forcibly 
stated. But we need go no further. Enough has already been said to show that 
when private property is devoted to a public use it is subject to public regula- 
tion." This has been repeated over and over again in all the Courts. Citation 
of authorities would be a work of supererogation. If the public can regulate the 
charges of a common carrier so that only it is not deprived of all profit, as is 
held in Wellman v. Railroad, 143 U. S., 339, and Dow v. Beidelman, 125 U. S., 
680, it can certainly require a connectioi} for the accommodation of thousands of 



COMPLAII^TS AND DECISIONS. 29 

our people, even if, at the utmost, it requires a loss of fifteen dollars a day out 
of a railroad company making $2,000,000 net earnings annually out of its opera- 
tions in this State. * 

It is not necessary that the particular service reqviired shall be profitable if 
the total earnings in this State show a profit. It is precisely because some par- 
ticular service which the public comfort or convenience may require is not profit- 
able that the company declines to render it, it prefers to work the soft spots, the 
best paying one only, and it is precisely for that reason that the Commission is 
vested with the power to require those things to be done if reasonable and just 
(not necessarily profitable), as to which there is the protection of an appeal to 
the Superior Court and a further review here. 

In Railroad v. Gill, 166 U. S., 664, the Court, affirming the Supreme Court of 
Arkansas in same case (54 Ark., 112), says that the common carrier cannot 
"attack as unjust a regulation which fixes a rate at which some part would be 
unremunerative, * * * to the extent that the question of injustice is to be 
determined by the effects of the act upon the earnings of the company; the earn- 
ings of the entire line must be estimated." In Railroad v. Minn., 186 U. S., 
261, the Court says that if upon the whole operations in hauling coal the road 
makes a profit, the requirement as to a fair profit upon investment is satisfied, 
notwithstanding under the order of the Commission there would be a loss in haul- 
ing at the rate fixed in car-load lots. In Railroad v. Minn., supra, the Court 
says: "We do not think it beyond the power of the State Commission to reduce 
the freight upon a particular article, provided the companies are able to earn 
a fair profit upon their entire business, and the burden is upon them to impeach 
the action of the Commission in this particular." In Cantwell v. Railroad, 
176 — 111, 512, the Supreme Court of Illinois laid down the same doctrine thus: 
"The sufficiency of the earnings of a railroad to justify the expense of running 
a separate passenger train over a certain branch line constituting part of the 
entire system is not to be determined by considering the prohus of that branch 
alone, but of the whole business of the various parts of the roads operated with 
the branch as one continual line." In Railroad and Steamship Co. v. Commis- 
sion of Louisiana the Supreme Court of that State, through Nichols, C. J., in 
defining the powers possessed by the Railroad Commission, says: "They extend 
to matters concerning public comfort and convenience, and in the consideration of 
matters of comfort and convenience, the number of persons who may be concerned 
or interested in some particular matter at some particular point, enter as impor- 
tant factors in determining what is to be done. The Commission cannot ignore 
the comfort and convenience of numbers of citizens on a line of travel or convey- 
ance to base their action exclusively upon a consideration of the amount of dol- 
lars and cents which may be involved. * * '■'' In the present issue it cannot 
be claimed that the Southern Pacific road, either in the operation of its line as a 
whole or that part of it which falls within the limits of Louisiana has not been 
and is not remunerative; nor can it be said that the Morgan Railroad Company is 
not a paying corporation. * * * We do not think the point is made that 
after the business of the railroad corporation had made it fairly remunerative, 
the Commission is without general authority to direct that a portion of the 'sur- 
plus' profits (if that expression can be used) should be applied to the promotion 
of the comfort and convenience of the people along the line of road. When such 



OU N. C. COKPOExYTIO^^ COMMISSION. 

a point in the business of the road is reached, the rights of the 'general public' 
come clearly in view." 

In United States v. Trans-Missouri Freight Association. 166 U. S., 322, the 
Court says: "It must also be remembered that railways are corporations organ- 
ized for public purposes, have been granted valuable franchises and privileges 
(and among such the right to take private property of citizens is not the least), 
and that they all primarily owe duties to the public of a higher nature even than 
that of earning large dividends for their shareholders." In Gladson v. Minn., 
166 U. S., 430, the Court says: "The State which created the corporation may 
make all needful regulations of a police character for the government of the 
company while operating its road within the jurisdiction; it may prescribe the 
location of the plan of construction of the road and the rate of speed at which 
the trains shall run and the places at which they shall stop, and may make any 
other reasonable regulations for their management in order to secure the object 
of its incorporation and the safety, good order, convenience and comfort of its 
passengers and of the public." In Wisconsin v. Jacobson, 179 U, S., 297, the 
Court says: "That railroads from the very outset have been regarded as public 
highways, and the right and duty of the government to regulate, in a reasonable 
and proper manner, the conduct and business of a railroad corporation have been 
founded upon that fact. Constituting public highways of a most important char- 
acter, the functions of proper regulation by the government spring from the fact 
that in relation to all highways the duty of regulation is governmental in its 
nature. At the present day there is no denial of these propositions. The com- 
panies hold a public franchise, and governmental supervision is therefore valid. 
They are organized for the public interests and to subserve primarily the public 
good and convenience." 

It is needless to multiply authorities. As the United States Supreme Court 
says in the last cited case, the defendant was granted incorporation by the State 
"to subserve primarily the public good and convenience." If all those things 
required for the public convenience or comfort w^ere profitable per se to the com- 
pany, a corporation commission would not be necessary to compel the adoption 
and operation of such betterments. In Spring Valley Water-works v. Schottler, 
110 U. S., 347, it was held that the Legislature could regulate gas and water and 
other like companies to furnish their customers at prices to be fixed by the 
municipal authorities of the locality; and in Railroad v. Bristol, 151 U. S., 556, 
that the Legislature could require, even as to railroads already built, the removal 
of grade crossings at railroad expense. Certainly, then^ police power extends to 
authorizing the State Corporation Commission to require two railroad companies 
to make connection. The Corporation Commission, after three several investiga- 
tions, has found that this connection would subserve that end. The jury, after 
an overwhelming array of evidence, which we have not deemed it necessary to 
recapitulate or cite, has so found. The statute clearly gives the power, and the 
authorities are beyond question that the Legislature could confer it. Requiring 
two railroads to make connection is the exercise of a far less power than making 
rates or compelling the erection of union depots at such junctions. 

While we must reverse the decision below and affirm" the judgment of the Cor- 
poration Commission, in view of the novelty and importnnce of this class of legis- 
lation, it is well to take notice of some of the exceptions taken by the Commission, 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 31 

It was error to direct a verdict upon the first four issues. Upon the first 
issue, whether it was practicable to make connection by train No. 39, and the 
second issue, whether it was practicable to make connection by extending the run 
of the Plymouth train to Selma, there was a conflict of evidence, and the issues 
were of fact, and (if material) should have been submitted to the jury. More 
especially was this true since the order of the Commission was presumed to be 
valid, and the burden was on the defendant to show otherwise. Railroad v. 
Minn., 18G U. S., 2G4, 267. On the third issue, as to the practicability of run- 
ning the Spring Hope train to Selma in the four hours that it lies over at Rocky 
Mount, the evidence was uncontradicted that this could be done, and there was 
even evidence from two reputable witnesses which proved (if believed by the 
jury) that the costs of the extra run would be only ten dollars^ showing a profit 
of fifteen dollars daily. The excuse that the engine was used for shifting at 
Rocky Mount, or that, being a wood-burner, a small stand for wood would need 
to be built at Selma — the other engines being coal-burners — did not deserve to be 
considered against the inconveniences to thousands of the public caused by failure 
to make this connection. It follows that it was error to instruct the jury, in 
response to the fourth issue, to find that the connection could only be made by 
an additional train from Rocky Mount to Selma. 

The Court has the power to enter final judgment here, and on proper occasions 
has done so. Code, sec. 957; Alspaugh v. Winston, 79 N. C, 526; Griffin v. 
Light Co., Ill N. C, 438; Cook v. Bank, 180 N. C, 184. Final judgment has 
been entered here, not infrequently, by order and without opinion, as a matter of 
course. In Bernhardt v. Brown, 118 N. C, 710, it is said: "If this Court re- 
verses or affirms the judgment below, it may in its discretion enter a final judg- 
ment here or direct it to be so entered below. By preference, and as a matter 
of convenience, the latter course is, unless in very exceptional cases, the course 
pursued, especially since the Act of 1887, chap. 192." In Wilson v. Caldwell, 121 
N. C, 473, which resembles this case in being a matter of public interest and not 
a judgment for money, it was held "the judgment must therefore be affirmed, 
but in view of the public interests involved we deem it proper not to remand the 
case, but to enter final judgment in this Court," which was done, ousting the 
defendant from office and seating the relator. The Code, sec. 957, provides as to 
this Court: "In every case the Court may render such sentence, judgment and 
decree as, on inspection of the whole record, it shall appear to them ought in law 
to be rendered thereon." Rule 49 of this Court provides for "a judgment docket 
of this Court," with reference to entries as to difi'erent causes of action in which 
recovery is adjudged, and Rules 50 and 51 for the issuance of executions from 
this Court on its judgments. Among many other cases in which final judgments 
were entered here is White v. Auditor, 126 N. C, 584, and similar eases, in none 
of which the dissents were upon the power of this Court to enter final judgmejit 
here. 

The first seven issues were irrelevant and immaterial. The motion of the 
plaintiff for judgment upon the verdict should have been granted. The eighth 
issue, "Is it reasonable and proper that for the convenience of the traveling pub- 
lic the defendant company should be required to make such connection?" was 
answered '"Yes." This was the only material issue, and upon that finding alone 
the judgment should be entered here. This view is strengthened by the "inspec- 
tion of the whole record," which shows that the findings upon the fifth and 



32 X. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

seventh issues are that if the connection were made by .the most expensive of the 
four methods named, the loss was only fifteen dollars per day, and the report of 
the defendant to the Corporation Commission, which is in the record, that its 
annual net earnings in this State were nearly two million dollars. This shows 
the correctness of the finding upon the eighth issue as to the reasonableness of 
the order, even in the most adverse view. 

In this matter there has already been a year's delay. The inconvenience to 
the public continues each day. The act of the Legislature for that reason expe- 
dites the hearing of these causes by giving them precedence of all other civil 
cases. Judgment will therefore be entered here reversing the judgment of the 
Superior Court and affirming in all respects and declaring valid the order of the 
Corpor^ion Commission made in this case, 13 February, 1904. That order sim- 
ply directed the defendant to make the connection daily at Selma at the time 
mentioned therein, without specifying whether this should be done by quickening 
the speed of train No. 39 or by extending the run of the Spring Hope or the 
Plymouth train, or by putting on an extra train from Rocky Mount to Selma, 
and our judgment leaves to the defendant the same liberty of choice as to the 
mode in which it shall put into effect the order of the Commission. Owing to 
the possible necessity of making preparations to comply with this judgment, 
there will be a cessat executio till 10 February, 1905, entered on the judgment 
docket of this Court, and until that date no mandate shall issue to the defendant 
upon this judgment. The judgment of the Superior Couit is reversed. 

Reversed. 



THE GREENSBORO ICE AND COAL COMPANY vs. SOUTHERN 
RAILWAY COMPANY. 

This cause coming on to be heard upon complaint, and after notice to the 
defendant and an appearance by them, and it being made to appear to the Com- 
mission by the plaintiff that four cars of coal consigned to the complainant have been 
conveyed to Greensboro by the Southern Railway Company, and that said cars are 
now and have been on the yards of said railway company for several days, and that 
the agents of said company were requested by said consignee to place said cars 
for unloading soon after their arrival on a side-track built at the expense of and 
by said complainant and said railway company to facilitate the loading and 
unloading of complainant's freights; and that said consignee offered to pay the 
freight charges due on said cars of coal if the railway company would indicate 
their willingness to place them as requested by consignee; and it further appear- 
ing that the said railway company have refused to place the said cars as requested 
and insist that they will place said cars only on public team tracks; and it fur- 
ther appearing that said cars of coal can be unloaded by consignee in much less 
time and at much less expense on the track constructed for that purpose than on 
public team tracks and at no greater expense to the railway company; and it 
further appearing tliat the cause assigned by the Southern Railway for its re- 
fusal to place cars as requested by consignee is insufficient, namely, that con- 
signee refused to pay certain demurrage charged which the railway company 
claims accrued on other cars while on public team tracks of said railway com- 
pany, and which charges the consignee dispute and allege to be unjust: 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 33 

It is therefore ordered that the Southern Railway Company, upon the payment 
of the freights due on said cars of coal, and within forty-eight hours after service 
of this order, place the four cars of coal consigned to the Greensboro Ice and 
Coal Company on tracks provided by complainant and defendant for the loading 
and unloading of the freights of the complainant, to the end that the same may 
be unloaded and the complainant receive their freights.

EXCEPTIONS. 

The Southern Railway Company, a corporation existing under and by virtue of 
the laws of the State of Virginia, files with your honorable board its exceptions 
to the particulars that it objects to your order or judgment of date October 31, 
A. D. 1903, relative to the placing of the four cars of coal involved upon the pri- 
vate track of the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company in Greensboro, North Caro- 
lina, and states the grounds thereof, as follows: 

Exception No. 1. 

That the side track of the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company is the pri^'ate 
property of that company with the exception of the rails, and is under the con- 
trol of that company, and built by that company for its own use and convenience ; 
and not for the use or convenience of the Southern Railway Company; that to 
make the said side-track more useful and profitable to said Coal and Ice Company, 
that company caused the track to be gradually raised so that cars of coal could 
be dumped into bins made under said track with the least inconvenience to the 
said Coal and Ice Company; that during .the construction of this work, and with 
no default on the part of the Southern Railway Company, certain demurrage 
charges accrued, under order No. 36, rules of your Honorable Board, on five car- 
loads of coal, and on eight car-loads of wood, amounting in all to one hundred and 
forty-six dollars ($146.00), and under promise to pay said amount, upon which 
the Southern Raihvay Company relied and acted, the said Coal and Ice Company 
induced the Southern Railway Company to place the said car-loads of coal and 
wood upon the said private side-track, and said Coal and Ice Company have 
since refused to pay said demurrage charges though several times requested and 
demanded by the Southern Railway Company to do so; that the Southern Rail- 
way Company thereupon refused and still refuses to place any more cars of freight 
upon the private side-track of the Coal and Ice Company, and to extend them 
credit or part with their legal lien upon the four car-loads of coal ordered placed 
by your Honorable Board, or wdth their legal lien upon any goods, wares or mer- 
chandise, until all freight, demurrage, or other charges have* been fully paid, 
which the said railway company submits it has the right to do. 

Exception Xo. 2. 

That the Southern Railway Company is ready and willing, and has repeatedly 
offered to place said four cars of coal and other cars of merchandise accessible on 
its public team or delivery track in the city of Greensboro, N, C, and has placed 
said cars accessible as aforesaid, but the said Coal and Ice Company refuses to so 
receive them. The Southern Railway Company contends and insists that the said 
Coal and Ice Company has not any superior right to the delivery of their goods,

S4: N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

wares and merchandise, and that it is justified in refusing to place cars of Coal 
and Ice Company upon its private siding or tracks, and thus part with their 
property. 

Exception Xo. 3. 

That the said order or judgment herein excepted to is contrarj^ to tlie Four- 
teenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, in that it deprives 
the Southern Railway Company of its property without due process of law, and 
denies to it the equal protection of the law for that — 

a. It requires the railway company to part with the lien given it by law upon 
all goods, wares and merchandise, until the freight and demurrage and all other 
lawful charges are paid. 

b. It requires the Southern Railway Company to give or extend credit to the 
said Coal and Ice Company which it is unwilling to do. 

c. It is an adjudication of your Honorable Board without complaint and an- 
swer required by your own rules of practice and without legal or any sufficient 
evidence before you necessary for the said judgment to be entered, and upon which 
these exceptions are based. 

Exception No. Jf. 

That the said order or judgment herein excepted to is contrary and is repug- 
nant to the Constitution of the United States as an attempted regulation of inter- 
state commerce, and to a certain act of Congress known as the Interstate Com- 
merce Act, in that the four car-loads of coal, the subject of said order or judg- 
ment, were shipped to said Coal and Ice Company at Greensboro, from points in 
the State of Tennessee and the State of Virginia, and is an interference by your 
Honorable Board with interstate shipments. 

Wherefore, the Southern Railway Company prays that said order herein ex- 
cepted to be reviewed and vacated. 

Respectfully submitted.

EXCEPTIONS OVERRULED. 

This cause coming on to be heard on exceptions by the Southern Railway Com- 
pany, and evidence oflfered thereon by both parties, the following facts are found: 

The Greensboro Ice and Coal Company, jointly with tlie Southern Railway 
Company, constructed a side-track from the Southern Railway into the coal and 
wood-yard of the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company at Greensboro, and on the 
end and a part of this side-track within the yard of the. Greensboro Ice and Coal 
Company is a trestle with bins underneath to facilitate the delivery of car-loads 
of coal. This side-track is about three hundred feet long. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 35 

Between the 17th and 20th of October four cars of coal were transported to 
Greensboro, consigned to the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company. The Greensboro 
Ice and Coal Company had a standing order with the Southern Railway to place 
all of their cars of freight on this side-track, and offered to pay the freight on 
these four cars if assurance was given that the cars would be so placed. 

The Southern Railway refused to place said cars on this side-track, as requested 
by the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company, but offered to place them on public 
team track, and did place them on public team track. 

The four cars of coal were brought from points beyond the State. 

The Southern Railway Company, on the 12th of October, 1903, issued notice to 
Greensboro Ice and Coal Company, as follows: '"Please take notice that commenc- 
ing 12 noon, October 17, 1903, this company will decline to switch any cars to 
your private siding in the yards of your company at Greensboro, N. C, and will 
only make delivery to you on the public team tracks of this company in the yards 
at Greensboro, N. C. Tliis action is made necessary by reason of your refusal to 
comply with car service regulations in declining to pay reasonable charges for the 
use of cars that have been detained before unloading on your private track above 
referred to, and that we find it necessary for the protection of our equipment to 
tender you further deliveries upon tracks where cars may be under our imme- 
diate supervision and control.'' 

There was at that time, to-wit, the 12th of October, 1903, and is still pending, 
a controversy between Greensboro Ice and Coal Company and Southern Railway 
about certain demurrage charges. The Southern Railway claimed that Greensboro 
Ice and Coal Company owed them $146 demurrage on thirteen cars of coal and 
wood. Greensboro Ice and Coal Company denied that they owed this or any 
other sum to Southern Railway on account of demurrage. The facts in regard to 
this charge are as follows : For some years there had been a side-track constructed 
jointly by the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company and Southern Railway Company 
into the former's coal and wood-yard at Greensboro. The Greensboro Ice and 
Coal Company handles over two hundred car-loads of coal per annum; and to ex- 
pedite the delivery and furnish proper facilities for delivery of coal. Southern 
Railway Company agreed that the rails be removed from the end of the portion 
of this side-track within the coal and wood-yards, and that coal bins might be 
constructed under the track and the track elevated and placed upon a trestle. 
This work was begun September 8, 1903, and finished October 1, 1903. Greensboro 
Ice and Coal Company furnished most of the material other than the rails and 
did all of the work except laying and placing the rails. 

While the above repair was in progress fourteen cars of freight, consisting of 
wood and coal, consigned to Greensboro Ice and Coal Company, were transported 
to Greensboro by the Southern Railway. Only one of these cars was ever placed 
at an accessible point for unloading, and this one was unloaded promptly. Greens- 
boro Ice and Coal Company designated a side-track nearest to their coal and 
wood-yard, being part of the side-track leading into said yard but outside of their 
enclosure, as the place at which they desired the cars placed for unloading. 
Southern Railway did not place these thirteen cars as requested, nor at any other 
accessible point during that period. The cars could have been placed on the track 
designated. Cars for other persons were placed on this track during this period. 

The repair on the side-track above mentioned was finished October 1st, and nine 
of the thirteen cars above mentioned were placed on it by the Southern Railway 



36 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

and emptied and returned by the Greensboro lee and Coal Company within twenty- 
four hours thereafter. The remaining four cars were not pLaced on this side-track 
for about five days, but each one of them was unloaded within three or four hours 
after they were so placed, and returned to the Southern Railway. 

The freight charges on the fourteen cars were paid, but Southern Railway 
claimed $146 demurrage on thirteen of the fourteentcars, which charge Greensboro 
Ice and Coal Company refused to pay, alleging that they were improper and 
illegal. 

We are of the opinion that no demurrage should be demanded, as Southern Rail- 
way did not place the cars at the place designated by the shipper. We recognize 
the right of the Southern Railway Company to refuse to deliver freight until all 
proper charges for freight and demurrage are paid, but it has no right to demand 
the payment of improper demurrage charges on thirteen cars already delivered as 
a condition precedent to the delivery of four cars of coal involved in the order in 
this case, or to refuse to deliver the four cars on the side-track jointly built and 
owned by the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company and themselves, Avhen they were 
requested so to do. 

It is, therefore, ordered that the exceptions be and they are hereby overruled. 

First exception is overruled, the reasons alleged for this exception having no 
existence in fact. Greensboio Ice and Coal Company did not owe the demurrage 
claimed on five cars of coal and eight cars of wood. Greensboro Ice and Coal Com- 
pany did not promise to pay demurrage claim or any part of it. Southern Railway 
was not induced to place ears of coal and wood on the siding above mentioned by 
reason of a promise by Greensboro Ice and Coal Company to pay the alleged de- 
murrage charges. The freight on the four cars embraced in the order and all 
cars up to that time delivered to Greensboro Ice and Coal Company had been 
paid, and Southern Raihvay was not required to extend any credit or part with 
their legal lien upon the four car-loads of coal. It appeared that the freight had 
been paid and that there was no valid charge for demurrage. 

Second exception is overruled. Greensboro Ice and Coal Company had the right 
to have the four cars of coal placed on the side-track built by themselves and the 
Southern Railway, and they demanded that they be so placed. 

Third exception is overruled. 

a. The lien which Southern Railway had for freight had been discharged by 
payment thereof by Greensboro Ice and Coal Company, and there was no demur- 
rage or other valid charge against said company. 

&. The freight and all legal charges had been paid, and therefore Southern Rail- 
way was not required to extend credit to Greensboro Ice and Coal Company by 
the said order. 

c. The complaint of Greensboro Ice and Coal Company was filed with this Com- 
mission and notice thereof was given to the Southern Railway, and the Southern 
Railway appeared in response to said notice and answered orally and made de- 
fense for Southern Railway; and, after hearing and considering all of the evi- 
dence and argument offered, the order was made by this Commission. 

Fourth exception is overruled. The order of this Commission is not contrary 
or repugnant to the Constitution of the United States or' act of Congress estab- 
lishing the Interstate Commerce Commission. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 37 

The cars of freight had arrived at destination, and the freight and all proper 

charges had been paid thereon, and this Commission had the power and it was 

their duty to order delivery of said cars to the consignee.

PITTS & MONROE vs. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

The above-named plaintiffs, complaining of the Southern Railway Company, 
say: 

1. That the complainants own a lot in the town of Greensboro, consisting of a 
little more than one acre, fully described in a deed in Book 132, page 184 of Deeds 
in the Register's office for Guilford County, along the line of the Southern Rail- 
way Company, a foreign corporation and common carrier, upon which lot the said 
complainants do a business of handling and dealing in rough and dressed lumber 
and running and operating a planing mill, and have been engaged in this, busi- 
ness at this place for about three years. 

2. That for about twenty years prior to this time the complainants and those 
under whom they claim have been in possession of and using said lot. The said 
lot was used by the former owners for the purpose of conducting a spoke and 
handle factory. 

3. That about 1884 there was put in by the railroad company which operates 
the line of road now operated by the Southern Railway Company a private siding 
at the instance and for the accommodation of the then owners of said lot, and 
said siding was extended to the premises of others for their accommodation and 
convenience. That this was done by agreement between the property owners and 
the said railway company which was then operating said line of road. 

4. That the Southern Railway Company has succeeded to the liabilities and 
obligation of its predecessors and it has thereby become its duty to continue to 
maintain and operate said siding, and the plaintiffs are entitled to have operated 
and maintained said siding for their benefit and convenience. 

5. That in the conduct of the business of the plaintiffs, they usually unload 
about four cars of lumber per week from said side-track, and the land and plant 
of the plaintiffs are such that it is not practical nor can their business be profita- 
bly conducted unless said cars are delivered to them on said siding. 

6. That it has been the custom of the defendant Southern Railway Company, 
and its predecessors to deliver cars of freight on said siding, consigned to those in 
possession of said lot, for a period of twenty years, and to deliver such cars to 
the plaintiffs since they have owned and occupied said lot. 

7. That the Southern Railway Company at this point has two tracks parallel 
with said siding, one of which is about eight feet north of said siding and an- 
other about eighteen feet still further north, and said two tracks are used for 
trains, the northernly one for south-bound trains and the more southernly one for 
north-bound trains. 



38 ]S-. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

8. That within the last year the Southern Railway Company has constructed at 
or near Greensboro a large freight yard with sidings upon which are made up its 
freight trains, and upon which ample facilities are furnished for shifting. 

9. That said siding along the lot of the complainants is entirely convenient, and 
it is altogether practicable and feasible for the Southern Railway Company to 
deliver car-loads of lumber to the plaintiffs at said point when requested by com- 
plainants to do so. 

10. That on the 28th day of May, 1904, the complainants were notified by an 
employee of the defendant company, whose duty it is to see to the placing of cars 
to be loaded and unloaded at Greensboro, N, C, that he had been directed by the 
Southern Railway Company not to place any more cars for the complainants on 
said siding. 

11. Tliat the said siding now has a switch at each end tliereof and these 
switches are kept in such condition that the said siding cannot be entered with a 
train without the switches are thrown for the purpose. 

12. That the only trains that are placed on said siding opposite the place of 
business of the complainants are two daily passenger trains of Southern Eailway 
Company, one of which arrives from Mt. Airy about 12 M. and leaves at 1:26 P. 
M., and one bound to Mt. Airy which arrives about 4:15 P. M. and leaves about 
4: 25 'p. M., and the only other trains placed on said siding are the Raleigh trains, 
one of which leaves Greensboro about 7 to 8 A. M., and one of which arrives at 
Greensboro at 11:55 A. M. and leaves at 1:27 P. M.. and possibly another train at 
night. That these Raleigh trains do not go on said side-track at a point Avhere 
they would in any way interfere with freight ears placed at a point on said siding 
opposite the complainant's property. 

13. That there are no other persons now whose business and interests require 
the use of said siding for unloading and loading cars. 

14. That on the 24th day of May. 1904, a car marked A. C. L. 3422, and on the 
26th day of May, 1904, a car marked A. C. L. 6233, both loaded with lumber and 
consigned to the complainants, arrived at Greensboro over the lines of the South- 
ern Railway Company from stations in North Carolina, and complainants on May 
25, 1904, paid the freight on the first of said cars amounting to $26.20, and on 
May 26, 1904, paid the freight on the second car amounting to $27.20, and at 
once demanded that both of said cars be placed on said siding for unloading, as it 
had been the custom and is now the duty of the Southern Railway to do. 

15. That there are at or near the depot at Greensboro, N. C, other tracks and 
facilities than those mentioned that with those mentioned furnish ample facilities 
for handling all trains of the Southern Railway Company which are placed on 
said siding, and all other trains and business of said company, and the said com- 
pany unreasonably and without right or justification undertakes to use said sid- 
ing for other business than that for which it could be subjected by the North Car- 
olina Railroad Company, and unreasonably, wrongfully and unlawfully refuses 
to place said cars on said siding so that complainants may have same unloaded. 

16. That it will not take complainants exceeding one hour to unload a car of 
lumber, and they will unload said cars, if placed in such manner, as not to inter- 
fere with the defendant, in the conduct of its business as. now conducted, or as it 
may be conducted within reason. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 39 

Wherefore, the complainants pray the Corporation Commission that the defend- 
ant, the Southern Railway Company, be required to place said cars on the said 
siding under the just, reasonable and proper rules and requirements of Your Hon- 
orable Body.

Attorneys for Pitts & Monroe, Complainants. 



The defendant answering the complainant says: 

1. As to the ownership of the lot by the complainant set forth in paragraph 
No. 1 it has no knowledge or information sufficient to form a belief. It denies 
that the title of the complainant to the lot mentioned in the paragraph conveys 
or confers any right to the complainant to the right of way owned by the de- 
fendant, and especially to that part of the right of way upon which the track men- 
tioned in the complaint is located. 

2. The defendant has no knowledge or information to form a belief concerning 
the length of time the complainant and the former owners have used the said lot 
as a factory site, 

3. The defendant denies that the track which was built by the Richmond and 
Danville Railroad Company on the right of way of the North Carolina Railroad 
Company, leased to it^ was a private siding. It was built by the Richmond and 
Danville Railroad Company and not being, at that time, needed for the use of its 
regTilar trains, except occasionally, its use was permitted as a side-track. It 
denies that there was any agreement between the property owners and the rail- 
road company giving the owners of adjoining property any right to this track as 
a private siding, and defendant calls upon complainant to produce such agree- 
ment. 

4. The defendant admits that it is the lessee of the North Carolina Railroad, 
under the lease of 1895, the former lease to the Richmond and Danville Railroad 
Company, its predecessor, having expired by limitation some years ago, but it 
denies that any duty has devolved upon it to continue to maintain and operate 
the track as a side-track for the use of the complainants, and it denies that the 
complainants are entitled to have such track operated for their benefit. 

5. The defendant admits that from time to time cars have been unloaded upon 
this track, when it could be done without detriment to the interest of the defend- 
ant, but denies that the complainants have the right to compel the defendant to 
permit the unloading of cars upon such track when its use would be prejudicial 
to the interests of the defendant; that the defendant requires the use of this track 
for its passenger and other trains, and it will be impossible for the defendant to 
conveniently operate its trains without the exclusive use of this track. The de- 
fendant denies that the complainants cannot properly conduct their business un- 
less cars are delivered upon this track, for the reasons hereinafter given. 

6. The defendant admits that it has, from time to time delivered cars of freight 
on the said track, sometimes at considerable inconvenience, but avers that it can- 
not longer continue to do so, because the use of this track is now necessary for 
the safe operation of the defendant's trains since the construction and operation 
of the double track between Greensboro and Pomona. The defendant will herein- 



40 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

after state the reasons why it is not necessary for the successful operation of the 
complainant's business to have cars delivered on this track. That prior to the 
refusal to allow the further use of this track by the complainants the defendant 
gave notice to the complainants that it would thereafter require the exclusive use 
of this track for its regular trains. 

7. The defendant admits that it has two tracks parallel Avith the track men- 
tioned in the complaint, but saith that the use of the same is absolutely essen- 
tial for the movement of its trains going north and south, and that the track men- 
tioned in the complaint is necessarily required by the company for the use of its 
trains going to Raleigh and also the trains to Sanford and Mt. Airy, and the use 
of this track is also required occasionally for the trains upon its main line. 

8. The defendant denies the allegations of paragraph No. 9. 

9. Answering the allegations in paragraph No. 10 defendant saith that notice 
was given the complainants on May 5th that no more cars would be placed on 
said track and, in answer to written requests by the complainants, such notice 
was afterwards repeated. 

10. Defendant denies the allegations in paragraph No. 12. It admits that the 
trains mentioned are placed upon the said track, but it avers that the track is 
also used in the necessary operation of other trains of the defendant, which would 
be greatly impeded by the placing of freight cars as requested by the complain- 
ants. 

11. The defendant admits that no other persons are requesting the use of this 
track at the point opposite the complainant's factory for unloading cars, as stated 
in paragraph 13, but it avers that the business interests of the defendant abso- 
lutely require the use of the track for the movement of its cars. 

12. The defendant believes that the arrival of cars as mentioned in paragraph 
No. 14 is substantially correct, but denies that it was its duty to place the same 
as requested by complainants. 

13. Answering paragrapli 15, the defendant denies that there are other tracks 
and facilities at or near the depot in Greensboro which would furnish ample facili- 
ties for the handling of all the trains of the Southern Railway, and denies that it 
is using the track for other business than that for which it could be subjected by 
the North Carolina Railroad Company, and denies that its refusal to place the 
cars on said track is unreasonable, wrongful or unlawful. 

14. Answering paragraph 16, defendant denies that it is required to subject its 
business to the interference of the complainants by being dependent upon the 
complainants for the length of time it would take to unload their cars, and says, 
that it cannot safely place the movement of its cars under the control of tlie com- 
plainants by yielding the use of this track to the complainants. 

And for further answer: 

15. Defendant says tliat it has for some years operated a side-track leading 
into complainant's place of business upon the south side thereof, affording ample 
facilities for the unloading of cars, and that it has offered, and continues to offer, 
to the complainants all such cars as may be consigned to them to be unloaded 
upon the said side-track, which is convenient and accessible to the complainants 
and which affords ample facilities for the transaction of- their business, and that 
defendant did place the cars mentioned in the complainant's petition upon the 
said side-track in the complainant's yard to be unloaded by them. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 41 

And for further answer: 

16. Defendant says that since this complaint has been filed the defendant has 
constructed a new side-track (being an extension of the side-track which hereto- 
fore had not been constructed as far as the complainant's lot) along and upon 
the right of way of the defendant opposite the complainant's lot and between the 
complainant's lot and the track which the complainants seek to appropriate for 
their private use. That this side-track affords facilities for the complainant's 
use far more than the defendant is required to furnish or is in the custom of pro- 
viding to other parties engaged in similar business; that it has delivered com- 
plainant's cars upon this new track and that the location of this track will ren- 
der it very inconvenient, if not impossible, for the complainant hereafter to use 
the track mentioned in their complaint. 

17. Wherefore, the defendant asks that the complaint be dismissed and that 
judgment be entered against the complainants for the cost in this behalf un- 
righteously sustained. 

(Signed) SouTiiERisr Railway Company, 
By H. W. Miller, 

Assistant to Fir'st Vice-Pi^esident. 

Before a hearing could be had in this case, it appearing to the Commission that 
the cars had been placed on a siding and unloaded, it was ordered that the case 
be dismissed without prejudice. 



PARK MANUFACTURING COMPANY vs. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

Claim for demurrage. On November 3, 1903, the Seaboard Air Line Railway 
transported to Charlotte A. C. L. car No. 16285, consigned to Park Manufacturing 
Company. The exact hour of the arrival of this car at Seaboard Air Line depot 
was 6 o'clock A. M. The Seaboard Air Line undertook and promised to deliver 
this car on the siding of the Park Manufacturing Company at its plant on the 
Southern Railway, and had an agreement with the Southern Railway by which 
the latter was to switch cars containing freight transported by the Seaboard Air 
Line to Charlotte for consignees having side-tracks at plants in Charlotte on the 
Southern Railway tracks upon payment by the Seaboard Air Line of $1.50 per car. 

In pursuance of above agreements, the Seaboard Air Line delivered said car to 
the Southern Railway and took their receipt for same and paid them $1.50 for 
switching at 4 P. M., November 3, 1903. The Southern Railway did not place 
this car until 4 o'clock P. M. November 6, 1903. 

Upon the foregoing facts the Commission is of the opinion that the Southern 
Railway should pay Park Manufacturing Company $1 demurrage for failure 
to deliver car as required by rule of the Commission, and it was so ordered. 



DENNIS SIMMONS LUMBER COMPANY vs. ATLANTIC COAST LINE 
RAILROAD COMPANY. 

This cause coming on to be heard, and complainant appearing by Mr. J. D. 
Biggs, secretary, and W. N. Jones, Esq., attorney, and the defendant appearing by 
Mr. H. M. Emerson, traffic manager, the following facts are found upon evidence 
introduced : 



42 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

There is no way provided at Elm City, a station on defendant's road, for weigh- 
ing car-load freight. 

The revenue received by defendant for the past four years at this station has 
been over $2G,000 per year for car-load freight shipped therefrom, which could be 
weighed only on track scales, and the evidence tends to show that the revenue 
from this class of freight will not be less, on an average, for the next ten years, or 
longer. 

It would cost defendant about $1,000 to put in track scales for weighing car- 
load freight at this point. Without such scales it is impossible for defendant to 
give to shippers duplicate freight receipts, in which shall be stated the class or 
classes of freight shipped and the freight charges over defendant's road. 

The practice is to estimate the weight and then weigh car-loads at some other 
point on its line and then correct the estimated weights. This practice is not 
satisfactory to complainants, who insist that there is uncertainty and irregularity 
in weighing, which would be corrected if track scales were placed at Elm City and 
the weighing was done there. 

The Commission is. of the opinion that it is the duty of defendant to furnish 
the facilities for weighing asked for, and that, considering the amount of revenue 
received by defendant at this point from car-load shipments, this is not an unrea- 
sonable requirement; and it is ordered that defendant furnish track scales at Elm 
City for the purpose of weighing all car-load shipments from that station. 

EXCEPTIONS. 

The defendant, the Atlantic Coast Line Eailroad Company, excepts to the order 
of the Commission made by it in the above-entitled cause and dated April 20, 1904, 
and assigns the following grounds of exception: 

First. Tliat the Corporation Commission has not the power or authority, under 
the laws of North Carolina, to make the order referred to above in this cause, and 
that the same is illegal and without warrant of authority. 

Second. That there would be no benefit or service accruing to the general public 
if the above order was obeyed and perforaied by the railroad company, but that 
the only benefit and service that could accrue or could be performed under or by 
virtue of the said order to any person would be solely for the benefit and for the 
service of the Dennis Sinmions Lumber Company, and hence the service required 
would not be that of a connnon carrier, but solely that of a private carrier for the 
benefit of said Dennis Simmons Lumber Company. 

Third. That the Dennis Simmons Lumber Company is the only person or corpo- 
ration at Elm City wiio would or could use the said scales if the same were fur- 
nished and provided by the railroad company at Elm City, and that the only 
freight that would be weighed upon the said scales would be the freight furnished 
for shipment by the Dennis Simmons Lumber Company. That the Dennis Sim- 
mons Lumber Company is only temporarily located at Elm City for the purpose 
of cutting the timber owned by it near that place, and that within the next two or 
three years the Dennis Simmons Lumber Company will have cut, manufactured 
and shipped all of the timber owned by it that can be reached from Elm City and 
that will be shipped by it from that point, and that at the end of that time there 
will be no further service or use by the defendant for the said scales at Elm City. 
That tlie defendant has already provided and has in use scales for the weighing of 
car-load freights and lumber at South Rocky Mount, upon which all of the lumber 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 43 

shipped by the Dennis Simmons Lumber Company from Elm City would be 
weighed, and that it has also scales at various other important points upon this 
line for the weighing of like freight. That the lumber of the Dennis Simmons 
Lumber Company is not sold by weight, but is sold by the foot, and that the 
weight could not be of any service to the Dennis Simmons Lumber Company in 
preparing its bills or drawing its drafts for the sale of the same, and it can only 
be of service to it in regard to the matter of the freight upon the same. That the 
defendant also has track scales upon its line at Pinner's Point, in the State of 
Virginia, which point is the ultimate rail destination of ninety-nine per cent, of 
all of the output of the Dennis Simmons Lumber Company's plant at Elm City. 

Fourth. That the furnishing and providing by the defendant of the said track 
scales for the Dennis Simmons Lumber Company at Elm City will not produce 
any additional revenue whatever tO' the defendant company, and that in conse- 
quence the order of the Commission will amount to the taking of the property of 
the defendant without due process of law and without compensation, and is in 
violation of the Constitution of North Carolina and the Constitution of the United 
States. 

Fifth. That the said order of the Kailroad Commission is unreasonable and 
unjust. 

Sixth. That if this defendant is compelled to provide the said scales for the 
petitioner in this cause, the Dennis Simmons Lumber Company, it will be a dis- 
crimination made in favor of the said company by this defendant against all other 
corporations and persons on the line of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Com- 
pany who cut, manufacture and ship timber and lumber, and will compel this 
defendant to discriminate against them and to afford so-called facilities to the 
Dennis Simmons Lumber Company that are not provided by this defendant for 
other persons and corporations engaged in the same business, and that it wall 
also be a discrimination against all other persons and corporations on the line of 
the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company who ship any freight in car-load lots 
and have not scales or like facilities as are required by this order of the Commis- 
sion for weighing the same. 

Seventh. That such requirement would be a taking of defendant's property for 
private purposes without compensation and in violation of the Constitution of the 
United States. 

Wherefore, the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company respectfully asks that 
the said order of April 20, 1904, be rescinded and annulled. 

The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, 

(Signed) By Junius Davis, 

Pou & Fuller, 

Attorneys. 

Exceptions overruled, and defendant appealed to the Superior Court. 



CHARLOTTE SHIPPERS' ASSOCIATION, Complainants, vs. SEABOARD AIR 
LINE RAILWAY, Defendant. 

This was a petition by complainants against defendant asking that rates of 
freight on all property transported from W^ilmington to Charlotte be reduced to 
the same rate per ton per mile as the average rate per ton per mile now estab- 
lished by defendant between Portsmouth and Charlotte. 



44 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

The hearings in this case were had in Charlotte at the request and for the con- 
venience of the parties. The taking of testimony was concluded November 14, 
1903. The consideration of the matter was deferred, at request of counsel, so 
that they might prepare and submit briefs. 

Upon consideration of petition, answer, evidence and arguments of counsel, we 
are of the opinion that complainants are not entitled to the relief they seek. 

It appears that defendant, among other lines, owns and operates lines of rail- 
road between Portsmouth and Charlotte, a distance of 347 miles. The rate of 
first-class freight between these points is 68 cents per hundred pounds, or an 
average of 3.9 cents per ton per mile, and rates on other classes of freight are in 
the same proportion. 

Defendant also owns and operates a railroad between Wilmington and Char- 
lotte, a distance of 187 miles, and the rate on first-class freight between these 
points is 62 cents per hundred pounds, or an average of 6.7 cents per ton per 
mile, and the rates on other classes of freight are in the same proportion. 

Tlie rate from Portsmouth to Charlotte is operated at some profit. We do not 
think that this establishes the contention either that the rates from Wilmington 
to Charlotte are unjust and unreasonable in and of themselves, or are oppressively 
high with reference to rates over lines of the same railway and with reference to 
rates charged for similar services by other railways. 

The average rate per ton per mile, as a rule, is greater under all tariff's for 
shorter than for longer distances. In order to compare the average rate per ton 
per miie of the Portsmouth-Charlotte rate with rate from Wilmington, some 
point 347 miles from Wilmington should be chosen. Under rates established in 
this State the average rate per ton per mile from Wilmington to any point on 
the Seaboard Air Line Railway, 347 miles from ^Vilmington, for first class freight 
is 4.45 cents per ton per mile. It was conceded that the rate from Portsmouth to 
Charlotte was based on the rate from Lynchburg to Charlotte, which latter rate 
was made and is maintained by the Soutliern Raihvay, the distance from Lynch- 
burg to Charlotte being 207 miles. 

It appears that the rates established over the Seaboard Air Line Railway in 
North Carolina are less for tl)e distance of 187 miles than in any other State in 
which it operates. 

The contention of complainants that the Commission has the power to require 
defendant to transport freight from Wilmington to Charlotte at a less rate than 
to intei'mediate points cannot be sustained. In special cases, upon the applica- 
tion of a Railroad Company, the Commission can authorize the Railroad Company 
to charge less for longer tlian for shorter hauls, but in no case can the Commis- 
sion require the carrier to do this. See Acts 1899, Chapter 164, Section 14. 

Much of the evidence offered in this case tended to show discrimination in rates 

from western points in favor of Virginia cities against Charlotte. If it were in 

our power, we would be glad to relieve against this grievance. The only thing 

that we could do in this direction would be to call the grievance to the attention 

of the Interstate Commerce Commission, but the evidence discloses the fact that 

this has been done by complainants themselves, and that the questions involved 

are now under consideration by that tribunal. 

This petition is dismissed. 

Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman.

tracks across the main street of the town leading to the new depot and freight 
yard. That upon ocmpletion of the new depot, defendant company locked it up 
and instructed their agent to allow no freight to be delivered from or received at 
the 'new platform, thereby working a serious hardship and expense to the people 
of High Point. This complaint was served on defendant and answer thereto was 
filed through the First Vice-President of defendant company, stating that the 
city authorities, under agreement, were expected to move certain buildings from 
the right of way, which had not been done, and which buildings were delaying the 
work and the opening of the depot. After investigation, correspondence and hear- 
ing, defendant Railway Company granted the relief asked for by complainants

the rates at present in effect. Petitioner alleged that they had handled 783 cars

Fort, while a charge of $2 per ton was made to Morganton. a distance of only 
thirty-two miles further and on the same line of road. 

Defendant, in answering the complaint, stated that the low rate made to Old 
Fort was for the purpose of encouraging industrial developments of North Caro- 
lina, but that they had found it necessary to advance the freight rate to Old Fort 
to $1.85 per ton, thus removing any ground for claim of discrimination against 
Morganton. 

The discrimination complained of having been corrected and the shipments being 
of interstate commerce, and the Conm:iission having no power to grant any further 
relief, case was dismissed. 



CITIZENS OF MANTEO vs. NORFOLK AND SOUTHERN RAILROAD 

COMPANY. 

Complainants in this ease alleged that the Norfolk and Southern Railroad 
Company operated a line of steam-boats between Elizabeth City, N. C, and New 
Bern, N. C, via Roanoke Island, but that the traveling public had suffered great 
inconvenience and the citizens of Manteo great annoyance on account of the failure 
of defendant's boats to stop at Roanoke Island for the delivery of passengers and 
mail, and asking that the Commission issue an order requiring defendant to run 
its steamer to the wharf, or, in case of low water, have a small boat for the trans- 
fer of passengers and mail. 

This complaint was served, and defendant, in answer to the complaint, stated 
that arrangements had been made to exchange mails with steamers that cannot

reach the wharf, but that no attempt Avould be made to exchange passengers be- 
tween steamers and small sail-boats, as it was considered too dangerous to under- 
take to do so. This answer was furnished complainants, and it appearing to the 
Commission that no further relief could be given, case was dismissed. 



CITIZENS OF LOUISBURG vs. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY.

pressed a willingness to improve the depot and track facilities, granting the relief 
asked for by petitioners, and no further relief being asked, case was dismissed.

people of other States. 

It appearing, after thorough investigation by the Commission, that it was with- 
out authority to grant the relief asked for, case was dismissed. 



REV. C. DENNEN vs. SOUTHERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY. 
Complaint of excessive charge for telephone service. Adjusted. 



CITIZENS OF RAMSEUR vs. SOUTHERN RAILWAY. 

Petitioners in this complaint filed before the Commission a petition, as follows: 
The petition and complaint of divers citizens of the town of Ramseur and others 

along the line of the railroad between Ramseur and Greensboro respectfully 

shows : 

1. That the Southern Railway operates a line of railway from Ramseur via 
Greensboro to Madison, a distance of about sixty miles, the distance from Ram- 
seur to Greensboro being about thirty miles. That according to the schedule of 
said railroad the only train each day from Ramseur to Greensboro is due to leave 
at 7:15 o'clock A. M., and returning to leave Greensboro at 2:55 P. M. and arrive 
at Ramseur at 5:30 P. M. That said train is frequently delayed and arrives at 
Ramseur late at night. That the said train is composed of freight and flat cars, 
express, baggage and passenger cars, being what is commonly known as a mixed 
train. 

2. Said citizens complain that they are subjected to great inconvenience and 
annoyance on account of the poor passenger and mail service provided. That 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 67 

many people along the line go to Greensboro daily and have but little idea when 
they can leave there on their return. They have to stand around the depot, wait- 
ing usually for hours, without any information from bulletin board or otherwise 
as to when the train will leave. That along the line of this road between Ram- 
seur and Greensboro there are several villages, and the travel to and from Greens- 
boro has greatly increased and the traveling public are put to great inconvenience 
and annoyance on account of the failure of the Southern Railv^ay to provide such 
mail and passenger train service as the traveling public and the business interests 
demand. Petitioners allege that the freight along this road, between Ramseur 
and Greensboro, has greatly increased and is of sufficient magnitude to warrant 
the handling of same by freight train alone. 

3. The petitioners respectfully submit that with the number of passengers 
handled over this road — and believe the number would be greatly increased with 
general passenger train — and the value of freight handled over the road, they are 
entitled to better service, and that the railroad company could well afford to 
grant it. 

We therefore respectfully ask that the Commission use its best offices in having 
the Southern Railway run two trains per day each way, at least from Ramseur to 
Greensboro — that is, one passenger train and one freight train. 
(Signed by fifty or more petitioners.) 

This petition was served on defendant, and, after correspondence and investiga- 
tion, answer was filed through H. W. Miller, assistant to first vice-president of 
defendant company, saying that his company had made arrangements to inaugu- 
rate a double daily service between Ramseur and Greensboro. 

This being satisfactory to the petitioners, case was closed.
